DeWayne is a recent graduate of the BridgeBuilders WORK program. Through our partner, Community Staffing Services, he earned a job at the Omni, is loving the job, and is doing great work.

We found out DeWayne was taking the bus and train to and from work every day, but that wasn’t enough to get him home, but in fact he was walking 1 hour EACH WAY to get to the bus, his nightly walk after midnight… just so he can have a job.

We reached out to Local Hub Bicycle Company and also received a donation, which together supplied DeWayne with his new bike, helmet, and lock.

We talk about the “material obstacles” of the poor. Every situation and every need is different. In DeWayne’s case, his next step to flourishing was simply the ability to get to the bus stop. Great job persevering, DeWayne, keep up the good work and let’s keep Making Poverty History!
