ST ANNES CENTER INC
November 18, 2010

Three years ago, I decided to come out as a gay man. The experience shocked my very traditional family and I was asked to "not be gay" or leave my parents' house. I chose the latter. I wasn't prepared financially or emotionally, nor did I have the skills needed for living on my own. My family and my church had been my support system for 18 years, and suddenly I didn't have them anymore. I was lucky though. I had a graveyard shift to work and a 1977 Cadillac inherited from my Grandfather to sleep in during the day. I also had a gym to go to for a hot shower and a hundred dollars in my checking account to eat on. I was only homeless for 2-3 weeks, and it wasn't too bad because I started out with enough resources and knowledge to get myself back on my feet. There are others without support systems, who don't have the knowledge and resources to get themselves on their feet. I believe those good people deserve a fighting chance, that's why I give to, advocate for, and volunteer at St. Anne's Center. I can honestly say, it has been a good investment.
