Imagine the desperation of living on the streets with two young children. This was Derek's reality until he was referred 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.
