“I never thought I’d be at a place in life where I was standing on my own two feet.”

“When I first arrived in Laramie, I was homeless, scared, alone and moving around a lot. I believed others who said, ‘You’ll never amount to anything, there’s no job that you’ll have for more than a couple months.’ I thought I was going to live in a rut my whole life.

Within the first day of starting Climb, we were delving into really deep issues, having these hard conversations with strangers, but by the time those weeks were over, we were far from strangers.

Now I wake up every morning looking forward to going to work. I sometimes want to go on Saturdays! I never thought I’d be at a place in life where I was standing on my own two feet. We live in a townhouse and I’m hoping soon to get the first raise in my whole life. I couldn’t ask for a better life at the moment!”
