An RPSV Success Story From Ben, in his
own words

"I was homeless from 2021-2022. I had
nothing and no one to turn to. I slept in
a tent."
"I used resources available to me from
RWC and developed skills to turn my life
around. I then got a job at Amazon and
was approved for an apartment in
Manassas. I moved there to start my
new life with my fiancé. Later we moved
to a place in Washington, DC. We love
our new home."
"I am now playing the father role to her
son. It is so fulfilling! Because of my
new responsibilities I have changed jobs
and now work for myself as a Lyft
driver. I get to choose my hours and
make my own money. Even better, I am
getting married next year!"
"I can't imagine where I would be right
now if it wasn't for the Reston Wellness
Center. You have helped me more than
you can imagine. Thank you for your
incredible support!"
