DRIVING HOPE HOME
I just want to personally thank you for what you did. I know you went above and beyond to get me a car. I appreciate that. I love how God uses others to help us out.
Phil is a cook at a local quick serve restaurant. Our San Diego City Director first met Phil when he volunteered at a local church. His life had rocky beginnings in foster care and juvenile hall culminating with a felony conviction and a prison sentence. But now this single dad of a special needs son is turning his life around. He was referred to Big Table because he needed reliable transportation to get to work and care for his son’s unique needs. He also needed coaching to assimilate to life outside of prison. Big Table initially helped with grocery gift cards and paid his phone and utility bills. After encouraging him to create a budget, we personally met with car sellers on his behalf to find a reliable car at an affordable price and covered the registration costs. He now can safely take his son to day care or therapy and make it to work on time. He finally feels like he is in the driver’s seat of his future and is ready for all life has ahead.
