Review for Project Renewal, Inc., New York, NY, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

If one is homeless and hopeless, and seeking assistance to acquire housing and trying earnestly to change their life, then Project Renewal is one of the best places to accomplish that. I went there entirely by luck,and I am ever so glad I had done so. But here's the kicker, I had been there in the past and didn't follow the plan they helped me develop to bring me back on the right road, but NOOOOOOOOO!!! I had to find a way to do it my way, and of course my way didn't work at all. I was a resident at Project Renewal for 17 months, and the way I look at it, that was 17 months that I didn't have to sleep on the train, a park bench, Central booking, or hope for a bed in a mission. I am very very Grateful for the the good people and staff of Project Renewal who have shown me the way to overcome and live a better and more meaningful life. Project Renewal has a dedicated staff and can truly assist one, provided they are truly trying to live a better life. Since I've been a client at their shelter, my life has improved immeasurably, as has my health, my peace of mind, my familial relationships, my outlook and my immense gratitude. I have maintained permanent housing now for 4 years(through Project Renewal) and am thoroughly pleased that I had the patience to hear and to heed the guidance of the staff at Project Renewal. What a joy it is to Go Home each day. I Love it, and it became possible because of Project Renewal. I also wish to say that everyone I've seen who were in the shelter and was impatient to go through the process, did their best to sabotage their chances to obtain adequate housing and maintain sobriety are probably still in a shelter system process, trying to manipulate where they are going to end up, which is not possible. So for those who don't have the patience, don't bother, for those who wish to make a change in their life, step forward and let the process begin. Again I wish to thank Project Renewal for all they have done for me. From Darrell Bristow
