After leaving prison for the third time, Brad was out of options


Nowhere to live, no job to return to, nothing to keep him from returning to prison.


But the Lord had other plans for Brad. He moved into the Mission, and as he began to rediscover his faith, and was encouraged by another resident to go back to school. Despite his initial doubts about pursuing higher education, Brad discovered it was easy to find financial aid and a program he was interested in.


Brad joined a program at a local college, and today, he’s holds a degree in Manufacturing Technology. He now has a job and an apartment of his own, and is ready to share his new skills and hope with the world.


I see [The City Mission’s] desire to help people… it’s given me the ambition to do that also,” says Brad.
