Being homeless in San Francisco, I had my wallet stolen, loosing my Green Card and social security card. Without these documents, I am unable to work. Unfortunately to work I have to provide a social security card but to obtain a social security card I have to provide my green card. It then becomes this circle where in order to pay for my green card, I have to work. That's why I feel like HandUp is a great platform because it breaks that cycle and allows me to pay for my Green Card and start working, providing me hope.

I am from the SF Bay Area but mainly San Francisco. I bounced around most of my life. 10 years ago I finally got sober and became a Drug and Alcohol Counselor for non-English speaking Americans.
I have been a drunk most of my life. In 2008, I finally decided to get sober. I was able to gain and maintain my sobriety for 7 years. In 2015 my girlfriend and her pregnant belly were in a tragic accident and passed away. I lost myself in alcoholism and lost everything.
My goal is to find a simple and happy life here in San Francisco. My plan is to find a job with the degree I earned and help others like me and find a nice, stable place to live.
My proudest moment was when I graduated from CCSF with an A.S in Behavioral Science when I gained my sobriety in 2008.
