Behind the Wheel of Hope: Joe’s Story

Share This Great Story

Think about the countless destinations you’ve reached in the past 15 years: your workplace, doctor’s appointments, grocery runs, your children’s schools. Now, imagine navigating those journeys without the freedom of a driver’s license.

After a decade and a half without a driver’s license, Joe recently took the necessary steps and successfully got it reinstated! He had postponed the process due to past struggles with drinking. Now sober, Joe was motivated to move forward with the reinstatement process with encouragement and guidance from Good Sam.

Joe, employed as a painter, has been working incredibly hard and also fulfilled the requirements of our Matched Savings Program! We’re so happy about how far he’s come, his journey starting at our winter shelter, progressing through the temporary housing steps of our program, to now living in our affordable housing!

Help provide hope to someone in our program like Joe:
