    This week we have even more great news! Volunteers at the SRC went and helped our friend Hugo clean out his house last week. It seems like a little task, but it will have a big impact for Hugo and a couple of our other clients! Hugo can now rent out rooms to other clients who need housing, and in return, Hugo will be receiving some income from the rentals. It’s a win-win for everyone this week! Having a wonderful week everyone! Thank you for allowing us to help Hugo and so many others like him.

    Our friend Aaron struggled to find a job because he was often let go when they discovered he was homeless. We are so excited to announce that he is now employed with Boardwalk Bowl! As we previously posted about Aaron, he also volunteers much of his time at the Samaritan Resource Center and has continued to do so even though he is now employed. Aaron we are so lucky to have you and so VERY proud of you for your new job! Congrats!
