Rodney’s Journey

Rodney’s Journey

Rodney’s Journey 150 150 admin

Rodney and his mother were living at an Inglewood homeless encampment when they obtained separate hotel rooms through Project Roomkey. Rodney was later referred to Mental Health America of Los Angeles (MHALA) and People Assisting the Homeless’ (PATH’s) Recovery Rehousing Program because of his substance use. While living in a Single Room Occupancy (SRO) building, Rodney was introduced to harm reduction techniques and became sober. MHALA helped him find employment and he began working at the Long Beach Aquarium. Rodney’s goals are to maintain his job, find a new home with the EHV he has received, and buy a car. He is the father of two children and has maintained contact with them. Rodney said he feels “encouraged to do better and not give up in life.”
