Almost 80 years old, he figured he was unemployable. 

Smart as a whip and still very able-bodied, he refused to lose hope that there was someone who could see in him what I have seen all along. We worked on his resume and references and against all hope, spent six months looking for some kind of supplemental income to the meager monthly social security check which left him with a pauper’s allowance for food and next to nothing for Christmas. He got the call the first of December and started full time on the 18th. Nearly a month into the new job he can walk to each day, Steve’s countenance is that of a changed man. His Christmas miracle arrived just in time for him to share his hope and generosity with countless others at the senior community where he lives. Senior citizens need to feel needed, want to feel wanted and hope to be helpful. His normal has been changed thanks to one very smart employer who saw age and experience make good business sense. 

When you give to HopeLink, you help people like Steve rediscover a life of self-sufficiency. Even at 80!
