“Thanks to Townspeople I no longer have the fear of feeling that I can’t accomplish anything in life.”
“To all the staff at Townspeople: I would like to state how much you Guys have given me. Upon coming to townspeople I had no idea of how my life would turn out. I knew that I wanted something good for myself and I wanted to feel free and independent. When I came into Townspeople’s office for the first time after getting on their waiting list I was patiently told by my case manager to report to Impact program which allowed me to get my place at Townspeople. I moved in within a month later.
After moving in to the apartment, I was able to experience the respect of having my own place after living under someone else’s place for so long. Townspeople has given me my life back. I was able to become a great Mother to my son and watch him grow and make it through his obstacles and struggles. I was able to stand firm and accomplish my goal. I graduated with my associate’s degree and got my Teacher’s license. I worked part time at San Diego City College as a teacher’s assistant. I lived on Townspeople’s property for five years and I highly thank them for allowing me to become a great success story. My Life today has allowed me to grow and become independent. Thanks to Townspeople I no longer have the fear of feeling that I can’t accomplish anything in life.
I received all that I could from Townspeople and realized it was time for me to move on. I now have a new place that I love so much. I have 9 years clean and sober. I work hard on a daily basis to maintain my recovery no matter what. Today I volunteer at Townspeople and I give back to the community, which was so freely given to me. Thank you Townspeople.”
“Since I have been with Townspeople, I have been doing very well physically… I am about to earn my associates degree in business administration…”
“Since I have been with Townspeople, I have been doing very well physically; I have taken my medication daily, working out at the gym several times a week, and I have been eating well. I have been doing well spiritually; Going to meetings of Narcotics Anonymous (NA), regularly seeing my sponsor, doing my step work, and focusing on a positive way of thinking and behaving every day. I now have 3 ½ years clean and sober! I have been doing well at work, building amazing, healthy business relationships at my work-place. In return, I have been doing pretty well financially and I was able to buy a car. Educationally I have been doing well too. I am about to earn my associates degree in business administration next spring. Thank you.”
“Emergency Housing has helped me find my place and be stable… I thank God for putting this organization and nice people in my path…”
“I want to thank Townspeople for everything they have done for me. When I was homeless and had lost my place Denise helped me with Emergency Housing. The whole organization helped me when I was down. Being in the Emergency Housing has helped me find my place and be stable. I will be moving into a studio and none of this could have been possible without the help of Townspeople staff. I want townspeople to continue helping other people in the community just like they helped me. I thank god for putting this organization and nice people in my path.”
