Sam’s Story

Sam was a carpenter for thirty years. It was all he knew but he could not do it forever. He suffered from carpal tunnel in his left hand so bad that he would wake up with his fingers wrapped tight in a fist, as if still holding his hammer. His knees were getting worn out too.

Sam had difficulties finding another job he qualified for or that his overworked body could stand to carry out. One thing led to another and Sam became homeless. But after several years of living out of a van, Sam’s...

John’s Story

John came to EarthLinks, a Veteran with health and addiction issues. He was homeless and isolated. Within five years, John walked out of EarthLinks sober and on the way to stable housing. He had done it! John continued to come back to EarthLinks during winter months to help with snow removal, riding over on a fixed-up bike that was donated to EarthLinks. He’d help out on special projects if it didn’t interfere with his full-time job. But a week ago John stopped by and said he would not be coming this winter. We were concerned. Was something wrong? What he said next validated the very...

Ona’s Message

To my dearest EarthLinks community, On my first day at EarthLinks, I drove Earl, the old truck, to the middle of nowhere, donned a bee suit, and learned how to harvest honey from a top bar hive.  I was terrified of public speaking, painfully shy, and knew nothing of homelessness.  From there, I have had the distinct privilege of learning, growing, and blossoming alongside the love and support that emanates from this community.  During my time here at EarthLinks, I have transformed into the person I am today because of the support that I have received from all levels of this organization, but...
