Between homelessness and enrolling for college, there are important considerations in-between that must be addressed. William, who now works a couple of days a week and lives independently after staying at the Shelter and then at St. Paul's Transitional Housing, fully recognizes those consideration thanks to help from St. Paul's.

"St. Paul's helped me focus, my mental health, my physical health, my financial status", he said with gratitude. Today, William is planning to enroll at Owens College and major in Social Services to help others. "Nothing can hold me back now … there's a lot more to go" he confidently said with hope for a better future.
