Over the years, Bill carefully saved his money and eventually bought a small home. In 2009, he developed neuropathy in his feet, and could no longer drive for the local transportation company he had been working with for the last 14 years.
Bill desperately looked for work that would not require him to be on his feet, but couldn’t find anything in the shrinking job market. He ran through his savings in just over a year, and soon after lost his home. In November 2011, he came to Maureen’s Haven. Here he found hope, and was soon on the path to self-sufficiency. Today, Bill lives independently and works full time. He recently asked to volunteer in order to give back for what he was so freely given.
