A Riverside House Client is Grateful for the Ability to Prepare for Fatherhood

By June 11, 2020 No Comments

Riverside House provides unique opportunities for our clients to find a new path when emerging back into society. From basic life skills to career training, Riverside House is there to guide its clients as they ease through the transition into a normal life.

In this testimonial, our client talks about how Riverside House accepted him and helped prepare him for the biggest change of them all — fatherhood.

Riverside has helped me in my transition and helped to guide me in many situations. Long story short, when I was released from Riverside House, I relocated to North Carolina. I found a job and things were going well. But I always wanted to have my own place and I knew I needed a change. I contacted Riverside House about programs in Miami because I wanted to come back. I was referred to OIC and some other programs, too.

While back in Miami I secured a job and my own place. Now, I can begin this new chapter in my life. On May 31, 2020 I will be finished with my probation and I will be welcoming a new son or daughter the following month. I am forever grateful for the support Riverside House has given me. I know my past experiences will not affect this new role of being a father.

As a successful resident of Riverside House, James* set out to start a new life. During the process he was strong enough to admit that he still needed a little more assistance and turned to Riverside House to help him get to a place where he could fully support not only himself, but the child he had on the way.
