Everyone Deserves a Second Chance



When Mike arrived at St. Vincent de Paul’s Cardinal Manning Center on Skid Row in Los Angeles, he was homeless, underemployed, and in debt. His driver’s license had been revoked, he had lost his job as a commercial driver, and he had lost his home. After three months at the center, Mike was out of debt, working a new job, and moved into permanent housing. Mike was thankful to the warm center staff and to his social worker, Ann, in particular. She helped him find housing and set up the plan for him to repay his debt. Mike felt he was able to grow as a person during his stay. Mike felt blessed by the opportunities he was given at the center. “I’ve recommended this program over and over to everyone I know,” Mike said. “Everyone deserves a second chance.”
