Not too long ago, Lee had a life he loved—a successful career, a home, a car and friends who shared his love of music. Then he encountered a series of unfortunate events in life, and Lee lost it all. Some nights he took refuge at a local homeless shelter. Other times he had no choice but to sleep on the street. He felt alone and afraid and didn’t know how much longer he could survive. Thankfully, he connected with a social worker who told him about Community First! Village. Because of you and your loyal support, Lee was rescued from the ravages of the streets and now calls Community First! Village home.
Not long after he moved into the Village, Lee was in a traumatic bus accident that severely injured his leg. During this time, he discovered what Community First! Village is all about. His Village neighbors visited him in the hospital and took care of his cats while he was away. When he returned home, they checked on him regularly making sure he had everything he needed to heal.
