Stories of Hope



Patricia Bryant, known as 'Peaches', is a 51 year old woman, who came to Hands of Hope in April of 2012 suffering from mild behavioral health issues and without an income. She received services from Hands of Hope and REST for the next 5 years. She has very little education, so finding work is a challenge. Patricia's health deteriorated from living outside. She suffers from COPD, asthma and has heart issues, which required a pacemaker in December of 2016. By collaborating with another local non-profit Hands of Hope was able to have Peaches housed in September 2017 when she was assisted with Rapid Rehousing monies. She has been awarded her SSI benefits and remains housed in a Live Oak home. Peaches is a representation of many of our clients who are single elderly women with no means of support that are falling through the cracks of our current system. With our combined efforts she is now a success story that we can utilize to encourage others.



Kati is a young woman who has been homeless most of her life. She is blind in one eye. She has been living at the river bottoms for the past 3 years and comes to Hands of Hope for our services. Recently she decided to participate in a Work Wellness program sponsored by Sutter Yuba Behavior Health that did job training for 6 months to prepare her for a job. This January she started a part time job at a local clothing store. She looks forward to working full time and being housed!!
