My name is Chris. I came to Coastside Hope in July of 2009. I wanted to express my thanks and gratitude to Coastside hope for saving my life. I was given enough food and support and directed to Cabrrillo mental health. They in turn furnished me transportation and shelter, and treatment. From there I was put into the food stamp ETB program and medi-cal, and vocational rehabilitation. 5 years later my mental health is stable, my living conditions are safe, I’m happy and will file for Social Security disability soon. Thanks to Coastside Hope I have come from lost and homeless to happy and healthy because of there support and services. They gave my life a new start. Thank you Coastside Hope.
