Michael came to Phoenix from Texas for employment that he had lined up. Once he arrived in Phoenix for the job, his new employer informed him that a decision had been made to put a freeze on hiring. He was now in a new state, alone, where he had no family or friends, and he had no idea what he was going to do. Looking at all options to prevent him from falling into homelessness, Michael arrived at the HSC.
During his Campus orientation, he learned about the Diversion process from a resource specialist in the Brian Garcia Welcome Center. After HSC staff verified that Michael would be welcomed home by his brother in Texas, we provided Greyhound bus transportation for his trip home, where he has secured housing, support and employment.
