The following is a solicited testimonial from one of our NDCP clients, Kevin Beasly. Kevin needed some help in 2022 and found his way to our center. We were able to place Kevin in a temporary housing (The Budget Motel) and then transitioned him to a permanent communal group housing situation. We were more than glad to help Kevin, as we are all our clients, and we thank Kevin for filming the following testimonial –
Hello, my name is Kevin B.
I came to the Compassion Center of New Direction Community Programs in November 2022, and I’m here to give a shout out to them for their kindness and graciousness.
At the time I came to the Compassion Center I was going through a difficult period in my life, and they were there to reach out and help me during my time of trouble – the Compassion Center went above and beyond.
It was by the grace of God that I came across New Direction Community Programs’ Compassion Center during my time of falling into homelessness. I did not have a place to stay nor any money for lodging. I was afraid I’d have to sleep on the streets and I truly did not know what to do.
It was then I remembered a flier I had been given about New Direction Community Programs’ Compassion Center and said to myself, “They’ll help me!”; and sure enough, not only did the staff welcome me with open arms but their case manager sat down with me to go over my situation. They helped me to get on GR and the Pilot Program as well as providing me temporary motel lodging until the Pilot Program approved me to move into a shared room, which I did!
With that, I want to encourage anybody that you know that needs help to reach out to New Direction Community Programs’ Compassion Center. Their doors are always open to help – if you need a breakfast, lunch or shower, have nowhere to go, stop by and see how they can help you. They do not turn their back on anyone, truly, it is a Compassion Center!
With that, everyone have a blessed day!
