Home for the Holidays: Christian's Story

Help us Furnish a House for Christian Through Humble Design!

December 12, 2019

It's been three weeks since Christian found an apartment with the help of Alpha Project. They helped him get his section 8 voucher and that was a first, giant step toward getting off the street. 

Prior to homelessness, Christian had been diagnosed with cancer. He has been in his current apartment for three weeks, the same amount of time since he ended his chemo and radiation treatment. He is officially a cancer SURVIVOR.

"Dealing with being homeless and having cancer has taught me to fight life in a whole different way," said Christian. 

In 2017, before his diagnosis, he had an easily recognizable life- a guy with two small businesses, living in a cottage with his partner and their dogs. Three months later, he was sleeping in his car with his dogs.

Christian met Dana at a dinner for the unsheltered that she hosts weekly at her church in Mission Valley. Today, we are raising money to help furnish Christian's apartment through Humble Design. Help us help Christian. We can't think of a more deserving person!
