2019 Summer Newsletter

Daniel Thanks You!

PVSS gave us a second chance to improve ourselves. You provided a roof over our heads and the opportunity to look for housing. We have a kitchen to cook our own meals and don’t have to worry about where we are going to eat. I’ve been clean for 3 years and out of prison for 10 years.

I’m trying to be a better husband and improve my relationship with my wife, telling Johnna that I love her more often and helping her around the house. I’m learning how to be a better father to my son by helping him with his homework, taking him to his practice and sports events, and telling him that I’m proud of him and that I love him very much. He is doing well in school, football, and taekwondo. One of our biggest goals is to save money and get our own place to call ‘home.’ Thank you for giving me the peace of mind to concentrate on my family and on myself.” – Daniel

Reunited & Thriving! Because of You…

In July 2019, Irene purchased and moved into her first home with her two boys.

Irene & Her Two Sons

“We purchased our first home! My oldest son and I accomplished our goal! I never dreamed of buying a home.

I would always tell myself, ‘not this generation.’ I never imagined that it was possible.” – Irene
