Mike was recently released from jail for serving time on drug convictions and needed a helping hand to get started again. He was given an opportunity by Covenant House, a ShareLife supported agency, to learn the culinary arts. In the longer-term residence, Mike has stable housing for a year and access to all of the support services at Convenant House. His hard work and determination have paid off as he now has full responsibility for his station. An additional 40,000 people were also given food, shelter, guidance, care and education through ShareLife agencies. Please support ShareLife.
