Finally Finding It: Hope!

Share This Great Story

Depression had been a constant companion for Craig, often keeping him in bed for days on end and making it challenging to hold down a job. During one particularly dark period, Craig’s girlfriend ended their relationship and asked him to move out of their shared apartment. With nowhere to go, Craig felt completely lost and even contemplated ending his own life.

But then, something wonderful happened – Craig found his way to Good Sam. He moved into our emergency housing and started having regular sessions with our amazing counselor, Kristin, and his life began to transform in incredible ways.

“Without Good Sam, I honestly don’t think I’d be here on Earth anymore. I have hope in life again.”


Depression and anxiety are challenges that many people in our program face. And it’s fitting that we mention this during September’s National Suicide Prevention Month. Thanks to your unwavering support, we can provide not only life-changing, but in cases like Craig’s, life-saving care to our neighbors who find themselves at their lowest points.

Just think about how incredible that is! Together, we’re making a real difference and bringing hope back into the lives of those who need it most.

Help provide hope to someone in our program:
