We have known Rich for over 6 year now, he frequents our outreaches and has been a regular and wonderful contributor at our Bible studies. He has become a good friend to many of our volunteers. He has diligently kept a job for as long as we've known him, but remained living unsheltered.
20 years ago, Rich lost his license and had not driven a car since then. For many years he rode his bicycle from Livermore to Pleasanton for his night job. Riding was challenging and hazardous due to weather and cars on the road. Rich was determined to get his license back and he enrolled in classes to do so. We helped him practice driving and he passed all the exams.
He had been saving up to purchase a car but did not have sufficient funds to buy one. Miraculously, just as Rich passed all the DMV tests, we received a car donation! We knew this car was for him. Rich had invested the money he saved up to fix up the car, it needed minor repairs and maintenance. The car runs perfectly and is big enough for him to rest in it so he can go to work with more energy every day. He is overjoyed that he is able to have a vehicle of his own, and to utilize it toward the next step of his journey - housing!
