UPDATE: Since the story below was published in July, James has moved into his own apartment in Hartford and has gotten a job. His relatively short stay at Tabor House makes his a special success story, both for him and his case workers.
James arrived in Hartford on Nov. 6, 2013, a place he had never been except for making a few deliveries when he was working as a truck driver. He didn’t know anyone. He had no idea where he would sleep. He just knew he couldn’t be home, in Southeastern Connecticut, anymore.
If he was going to change his life, he had to leave a place where he was comfortable for a place where he was uncomfortable, a place where he wasn’t surrounded by the people and temptations that had brought him down so often in the past.
We can't keep cutting the grass with this contraption! Actually, we aren't using a bunny mower -- we just found that picture online and thought it was funny. But we really do need a mower to replace one that's on its last legs, so to speak. So if your mower is functional but you're planning on buying a new one, you could donate your old one to Tabor House and deduct its value from your taxes.
