What Are They Up To Now? Former Resident Spotlight
When Brian Kyle arrived at Gemeinschaft Home in the spring of 2015, he started out with the philosophy, “I made it, and I’ll keep on making it.” Without the added benefit of a strong family support structure, Kyle soon realized that the power to make a change in his life rested solely on his shoulders and that Gemeinschaft Home would provide him with the necessary tools.
Throughout his time in the program, Kyle maintained regular employment, walking nearly 8 miles (round-trip) every day to work at Taco Bell. The journey was not easy, but Kyle refused to adopt a focus of negativity, living by his personal motto: “something better is going to happen.” During this time, Kyle was also searching for full-time employment, without much luck, until his final day in the program.
That day Kyle received a phone call from a local roofing company, offering him a position. Now, he lives and works in the area, demonstrating on a daily basis what’s possible for Gemeinschaft Home residents who choose to make the most out of the opportunities afforded by the program.
