Meet Abraham

When 60-year-old Abraham was first released from prison after serving a six-year sentence, he was homeless and had no family or local support system. He was able to find food and resources for safe housing from a United Way funded partner. Abraham received training where he discovered his artistic talent in creating mosaic patterned floor tiles. Until now, he had never been asked what he wanted to do in life or to consider what he was good at. Now Abraham has a job that he loves, with union benefits, and is no longer homeless. He gives back to his neighborhood and recently helped create a Community Garden. Abraham is grateful to have been given a second chance.
