Victor arrived at the door of Cherry Street without hope.  His voice flat, his eyes glazed.  Victor talked about suicide.  Staff prayed with Victor.  Staff prayed for Victor.  As part of the Ready For Life program, Cherry Street got Victor connected to the appropriate services to help him and to support his mental health needs.  In a spark of inspiration (thank you Jesus for the idea!), the staff suggested to Victor the possibility of a service dog.  When a dog was first mentioned, it was the first time anyone had seen any life in his eyes.  Even though Victor is only going through the beginning paperwork- he has HOPE.  All it took was for someone to listen to him, to see him as Our Creator sees him, and to work the Ready for Life process.  Victor is Hungry for Hope.
