Client Turned Board Member Gives Back to Community

Former HomeAgain client and now Board of Directors member Alan Bartlett received the Giving Back award at Homeward’s 13th Annual Best Practices Conference last week. Having experienced homelessness firsthand, Alan shares openly about his experience and the transformational services he received while at HomeAgain. Since ending his experience of homelessness, he has given back to the community through sharing IT expertise on the Board and continued support HomeAgain’s mission. He also shares his experience through teaching a class at the local library and recounting his story in his self-published book “Life Events Management.”

Congratulations to Alan for this well-deserved recognition! Alan’s incredible story exemplifies that with the support of HomeAgain programs, anyone can overcome the hurdle of homelessness.
