Daniel, 50, was homeless in the San Gabriel Valley for ten years because of substance abuse.
He enrolled in a relapse prevention program at JWCH/Wesley, a Measure H-funded service provider, and received an Emergency Housing Voucher from LACDA. He was then matched to permanent housing at The Cecil Hotel.
Daniel is now working towards taking care of his health because he was diagnosed with anxiety. He hopes he can move in soon and begin mending his relationship with his family and siblings. “Never give up on a dream just because of the time it will take to accomplish it. The time will pass,” he said.
