ANDY & HIS SISTER

Andy and his sister, Anna, visited our office today during a town visit for a doctor's appointment. He had been a 'regular' in the office before the pandemic. Andy didn't recognize some of the new faces but began sharing his story. He was homeless for 25 years, struggled with addiction, and faced legal issues. With Orion's help, he received support like hotel stays and transportation, turning his life around. Andy has been sober for 8 years, with stable housing and access to resources. Their gratitude is as profound as Andy's love for Philly sports, and they plan to volunteer with us soon.
