David is a 62 year old chronically homeless veteran who had historically rejected assistance from services in the past. When Morning Glory opened David began coming and over the first two years engaged with the staff and developed a trusting relationship.
David began volunteering every day and became an integral part of the program. Staff suggested that David begin working with Morning Glory’s sister program, the Homeless Outreach Team. David agreed and was able to obtain an apartment with assistance from the VA.
Currently David has lived in his apartment for two years. He still comes and helps out every morning and encourages other clients of the program to accept assistance from the staff of Morning Glory.
