I grew up in Altoona, WI and graduated from Altoona High School in 1975. I was living in Altoona when I lost my old job and became homeless. I stayed at the Sojourner House for about four months.
I started working at the Sojourner House through Citizens Employment and Training, Inc. doing janitorial work. After a year when my contract with CET was done, Catholic Charities hired me and I started working for them directly as the janitor/maintenance man. Then I moved into the Inn Towne in February 2013 and that ended my homelessness. Now in 2015, my position has changed to Lead Staff at the Sojourner House.
I love my job, especially when I can help someone that needs something from the Sojourner House during the daytime when I work. I am also a huge sports fan. I love to go to games or just watch them on TV. My favorite sport is baseball!
