This is one of our clients; he had been living on the street for several years when he came to Project Connect on a brutally cold day recently. This man asked for help obtaining an ID so that he could gain admittance to a shelter. We were able to secure a bed for him that night at the Goodwill Men’s shelter.
A few weeks later, when the Project Connect case manager handed him his birth certificate, he was overjoyed to receive his first piece of official documentation. This client is extremely grateful to Bridges and the Goodwill shelter for the help and kind treatment that he has received. We are continuing to work with him so that he can get his NJ state ID and, ultimately, housing.
