Verified by Lighthouse.
I am using HandUp because I want to accomplish a new start in life. I have two grandchildren that I need to get to know much better.
I am from Royal Oak Charter Township. I got into drugs at a young age, which landed me in prison for 31 years, in and out. Then while I was doing the last bit of my time, I decided to straighten out my life.
After struggling with addiction for awhile, relapsing, and quitting cold turkey, I had three strokes. I went through treatment and got clean, but ended up homeless.
I am going to use the tools that I get from this program to help me to get to the next phase in my life.
I would love to help others that need these steps in order to enter the world again.
