We have had the pleasure of witnessing Olguy grow over the last 5 years. We have been dedicated to supporting him on his journey to a life of stability and self-sufficiency. Olguy has stayed committed, trusted the process, and graduated from the Dining with Dignity Culinary Training Program and moved into the Dignity Jobs Program. He now serves diligently, as our Laundry Attendant and we could not be prouder. The Olguy who showed up on our doorsteps 7 years ago, who was scared, alone, and didn’t speak a word is not the same person who is now running our Laundry Facilities. Being a part of our programs has boosted his self-confidence, his communication skills, and gave him a family to belong to.
Members of The Source do varied jobs for building and ground maintenance, and in turn earn them “Source Bucks”. Once accumulated, the “Source Bucks” can be handed in towards the purchase of a variety of needs. Recently, many of the members have been purchasing new bicycles for their transportation by earning enough of the “Source Bucks” to pay for them.
Dignity Smiles provides free dental restoration to eligible Dining with Dignity graduates. Proper dentistry makes a difference with their confidence and employability. The Source partners with Dr. Sadesh Kumar, founder of Wickham Dental Care in Melbourne, FL, along with other dental partners across Florida.
Meet Chriss Hunter, he recently joined the Dining with Dignity Culinary Training Program to pursue employment and other resources to get his life back on track. As a student here, he received case management assistance that helped him research and obtain the required documents to get his Florida ID like his birth certificate. We provided Chris transportation to the DMV, walked in with him, and supported him throughout the process from start to finish. This is one barrier removed that brings Chriss closer to his goals. We are happy to be able to celebrate Chriss’s accomplishments in the program so far, like getting his ID today and looking forward to him graduating and moving into employment soon. Congratulations Chriss!

Meet Tammy Adkins
The Goodness of God is evident in Tammy’s life. As you listen to her story, can you identify with her tears? Have you had to make a tough choice like she did, choosing her sobriety over having a safe place to live. Have you been down and needed the support of others to help get you back up? When you support The Source, you support individuals like Tammy. She had income, she had the ability to pay rent, she had skills and abilities to work, and she had several years of sobriety under her belt, and this is what homelessness looks like. It looks like hard working individuals like Tammy and her husband Pablo, who give back and contribute to The Source with their time and service. We couldn’t be happier for them, now that they are housed and pray God’s continuing favor and blessing on their lives.
