For James and his sister, The Oaks is a family affair.
The Oaks is a supportive living facility that houses our managed alcohol program. James says his sister’s health has improved tremendously since his sister moved there.
It’s also where James likes to spend most of his days. Although James recently moved into his own apartment near The Oaks, he still likes to visit every day to check up on his sister and spend time with his friends. At The Oaks, the men and women have created their own community.
James is a quiet man of few words. He spent many years in the shelter overcoming his addiction to alcohol. He, too, went through the managed alcohol program at the shelter. James now has the skills and confidence to stay healthy and monitor his own alcohol intake. He says without Shepherds of Good Hope, he would still be living in the shelter.
It took small steps but eventually we stabilized James’ health and he learned the skills necessary to live on his own. Without your support, we could not have provided James with the care he needed to escape the shelter life. Without your donation, James might still be living in the shelter. Please help because more men like James need you.
