Welcome Home Dennis and Mike

By: ePATH

A red 1986 rusted truck is what brothers, Dennis and Mike called “home” for over five years.Things looked up when they were able to rent an RV. However, the “bug infested box” as they call it, cost them $450 a month. No working toilet. No shower. No running water. That was “home” for another restless six years. Mike, working since he was seventeen, did not make enough to afford a decent apartment for both him and his brother.

Today, with the help of community partners and PATH, Dennis and Mike cannot stop smiling about their new home. After more than a decade of being homeless, these kind, warm spirited brothers now have a working bathroom, clean beds to sleep in, and a kitchen where they can finally cook. Dennis says, “I keep waking up, not really believing this is where we live now.” Mike and Dennis are thankful for their new home, a support network, and a landlord who genuinely cares about them. Dennis and Mike have finally Made It Home!
