Derek and his two sons were homeless

Imagine the desperation of living on the streets with two young children. This was Derek's reality until he was reffered to Way Finders. We were able to help him find a short-term housing solution and a temporary job. Several years later, with a long-term job and some unfinished business to tend to, he returned to Way Finders. Derek had always dreamed of owning a home and with out help he started to make his dream a reality. We provided financial education and credit counseling while Derek did the heavy lifting. Today, he and his sons have a permanent address and a very bright future.
