Participants have taught us getting off the street is not just about changing where you sleep.


“Having a room you share a house with other people is better than staying on the streets or shelter. It’s a start somewhere you can be proud of. Where I got today was a part of my determination. Everyone is different and we have different ways of succeeding. The Doorway helps people get off the streets how they choose to do so.”

“You know if I could go back in time and never get in trouble with the law, I never ever would have started. Because even though I’m not that deep into it I’ve still been to jail enough times to know that you always see the same faces over and over and over again. All it is, is a revolving door of in and out, in and out. You don’t want that. Do something with your life. Go to school, learn a trade and better your life. Because I’m telling you this isn’t the lifestyle you want you’re still too young you’re just starting out so stop before you’re one of those same old faces every time in jail.”

“The time I’ve been going to the doorway I can say I got a lot done for myself. It’s better when I write my goals down and try to accomplish them. I feel happy where I am at. I want to continue forward and be successful. I want success for others that come to the doorway as well.”

“What it takes to get off the streets. I think what it takes to get off the streets is to have a steady source of income and to have your priorities straight. Make sure you have your essentials and have rent covered. Look for support and don’t be afraid to ask for help.”

-A Participant Winter 2016

“I’ve been struggling a lot as of late with my using and drinking habit, letting it get out of control and I realize and truly see that once I remove drugs and alcohol from my life I am a lot more focused and willing to go the distance with anything. It’s hard, yes, but I do try my hardest.”
