A male resident moved into to Abbey Lane Apartments August 2018. From the moment he moved into his unit and learned about Better Tomorrows he has made a lot of changes in his life, with the help of the SSC. His first goal was to learn how to use the computers. While learning the internet, he was able to improve his
reading skill. Next, he wanted reinstate his voting right and register to vote, which he completed in 2019. Next was to go back to school so he applied for the Michaels Education Scholarship, which he was awarded. He also wanted to quit smoking. Although he smoked rarely, he wanted to stop completely, which he did in August 2019. And lastly, he wanted to get his driver’s license, which he also received in 2020.
This resident has also been a great role model in his community with all his community works such as volunteering his time to the residents’ community events, after school program, summer enrichment program and his mission work with his church. For the Summer Enrichment he needs to complete a course in abuse training which he did and passed.
Now he is in training to become a minister in his community and hopes to have his license by May 2021. Currently he spends his time working in the community by helping feed people, help them get clothes and other hygienic supplies. His goal is to encourage others to better their lives.
