Success Stories

A couple came into the shelter on July 20, 2022, without employment and expecting a child in just a few months. After settling in, they received case management, employment services, nutrition services, and financial literacy. Through employment services, both husband and wife were given information on obtaining more lucrative employment opportunities. The wife received assistance getting her certified nurse assistant license transferred from another state. While waiting for her license, she found employment with Timewise making $10.50 an hour for 40 hours per week. This temporary position was quickly substituted for a position with Focused Care as a CNA, making $15.00 an hour for 40 hours per week. The husband is now looking into other opportunities for employment that he never thought possible. He will be working with GradCafe, intending to obtain an accounting degree. For now, he will continue working with Luby’s as a Certified Chef making $12.00 an hour for 30-40 hours per week.

Archie Hill

Archie Hill and his family were residents at the Bay Area Homeless Services from August 2018 throughout April 2019. The shelter proved to be a huge asset for the Hill family, as the shelter provided help with childcare and allowed their family to stay whole during this rebuilding phase in their life. Archie says that having his wife and children in the shelter with him truly affected him as they served as a motivating factor for him to pursue goals every single day. He credits the shelter with teaching life lessons that he will pass onto his children, as well as utilize them himself. The shelter encouraged and motivated him and his family to work hard in school and to educate themselves. The shelter also taught him about saving money and putting money aside for unforeseen financial trouble that might arise. Due to their goals being met, Archie has been able to find and keep employment as a warehouse fork lift operator and has had the pleasure of finding a place to live right next door to his mother. His entire family is doing well and would like to thank BAHS for all that they have done for his family.
