A Place for Heroes

Darren Garcia

“I came down to Charlotte from New York. It was hard for me to find a place to live and staying in the Men’s Shelter was a trying experience. I was surrounded by a bunch of angry homeless men and it was as if the shelter was making money to keep me there because they weren’t trying to get me out. Rather than make me jump through hoops, A Place for Heroes called me and asked if I was interested in moving in. Thanks to their peer support I’ve been able to secure a North Carolina ID and make my VA appointments on time. For the 1st time in life I have a lease history and the stress of being a burden on other people has been lifted since coming here.”
