“I’m blown away by the help I was given by De Novo…. with the items they purchased for me, I can pursue this new career path with the sheet metal union with confidence and without the worry or shame of having to piece together little by little the essential tools of the trade. I’m so very grateful for this organization and the act of kindness they have shown me, and plan on giving back to them in the near future!”

This was the note I got back from our most recent client who was referred from Christian Hope Resource Center. Michael has overcome many obstacles in his life and is determined to be a good role model for his young son. He is also mentoring other young men and helping them avoid some of the mistakes he has made in his own life. He recently moved to a much better paying job that includes a 9-month training program. His salary will continue to increase as he moves through various courses in the program and becomes adept at a more advanced sheet metal skills.

De Novo was pleased to help Michael with the mandatory tools he needed and some steel-toed boots and jeans for the workplace. Between the wonderful support he is getting from Christian Hope Resource Center and the purchase of these necessary items for his new career, Michael will soon be self-sufficient and a contributing member of the San Antonio Community.
