Mark’s Story

Because of you, Mark renovated his own room and got off the streets.

When he shows visitors his own room at The Madison, Mark can take credit for building it.

“I did the flooring in here. I had to scrape all the old carpeting off,” he says. “It feels good live and work here.”

Mark is part of the employment-training program Building Futures. A motorcycle accident 10 years ago left him in a coma for a month with a brain injury.

I had to learn how to walk and talk again

The brain injury also left the 33-year-old scrambling for a job and homeless on the streets. He can work, but not like he once did.

Along with other employment-training participants and volunteers, Mark is helping renovate The Madison and gaining valuable skills that will prepare him for the workforce.

In his spare time, Mark likes to visit the kitchen at Siloam Mission and volunteers to clean the dishes after meals.

I like to help people. I feel proud of my work,
and I feel proud of my room. This is home now.
