Joseph moved to Orlando from Philadelphia seven months ago after his mother passed away. He left his job at a mall and came to Florida, “with $300 in my pocket, a book, a box of clothes and a hope and a dream,” he said.
Joseph moved to Orlando to be closer to his siblings because he was going through a difficult time and needed a support system, he said.
He hasn’t yet found work but is receiving housing assistance through another nonprofit organization. The Mustard Seed helped Joseph fill his home with all the basic furnishings needed for a fresh start.
“For all those who are struggling out there, just know there is hope. There is light at the end of the tunnel,” Joseph said. “There are resources out there and don’t be ashamed to ask for help. Shame becomes fear and fear becomes setbacks in people’s lives.”
