When I first came to One Hopeful Place I was lost and did not know where to turn or where to start. Ms. Donna and Ms. Liz were so kind, considerate, and understanding. I have never seen two more compassionate people. I’ve learned a lot about myself, my situation, and how to move forward. I have learned to handle things in a different manner since I have been here. One Hopeful Place has helped me along this path and helped me find a job at the hotel, complete my community control, and start my new life. I love my job and my bosses. It has given me a reason for living and the desire to get my life back. My coworkers are great people and I have received praise, tips, and gifts for just being me. I would like to continue to dedicate every free hour to help the staff at One Hopeful Place because I am thankful for the support and encouragement I have received while staying here.
I would like to thank One Hopeful Place for the many blessings that have been put in my life. I was stranded in Fort Walton Beach at the end of March with no place to go. They have provided me shelter, food, and hope. Since then, I have found a great job working at a hotel on the island and friendship at work and shelter. I have a new peace in my life and can look forward to the future again.
