We thank Jorge for sharing his story!
“On my first night at Jovenes, I was welcomed with open arms. We ate enchiladas. I took a shower. I was starting at the bottom, but everyone was friendly and cool. I felt better the next morning and was ready to start working on my plan.”
After that first night, Jorge’s plan to leave homelessness behind has become a reality. In just two short months, he was able to move into our Independent Living Program, where he shares a house with a roommate. He has an internship at East LA College and has been an advocate for other youth like him.
Keep up the great work Jorge!
