5 years

9:30am five years ago today I answered the phone of the second chance. So many wrong turns I’d taken had shaken me from a promising rise on the ladder of life down to the bottom rung for nine months as a highly educated janitor, thankful for the work but terribly underemployed. I accepted a job challenged with making a critical difference in the lives of the elderly and underserved and now direct Nevada‚Äôs largest privately funded program of senior advocacy and the undisputed¬†model for senior outreach in Nevada providing critical services at no cost to move forgotten elderly out of poverty with dignity, respect, love and compassion. HopeLink took a chance on me to change my normal and redeemed me from my own dismal fall, a gift for which I’m forever thankful, especially today. It has enabled me to write and share countless happy ending stories of a generation I serve and whose own normal I now help to change.
Never say die. Never.
