A long overdue homecoming

Wow. Check out this story about a client of ours who had been evacuated from New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina, only to suffer from memory loss. For years, Herlin Griffin was helplessly adrift from his family, and relied upon DC social services like Bread for the City to survive.

Finally, his family was identified and just last week he returned home - tided over for the trip with clothes and supplies he received from Bread for the City.

It's great to see a happy ending to a sad story! Thanks to the other agencies that helped Herlin along the way, like the DC Housing Authority and So Others Might Eat.
