Help us help Abraham get back on his feet! Abe has been released from prison clean and sober, and he's coming to live with Autumn and Ben--and we could sure use some help! More ...
We need your help to get Abe back on his feet. Abraham has been incarcerated for nearly 4 years after robbing a bank to feed a drug addiction. He started smoking pot when he was 11 years old, and moved on to harder drugs at age 14 with the assistance of his father. By age 21 he was addicted to opiates, and attempted to procure them by any means necessary.

His incarceration is the end result of a young life spent in drug addiction, and he wants to start over.

Abe did not use weapons in the commission of his crime, and he has been clean and sober for the duration of his incarceration. He is being released from prison on June 13th, but he has no clothes or personal possessions of any kind. Abraham has a wonderful opportunity to start his adult life in a new city living with us, his sister Autumn Hoverter and her husband Ben, but we need your help to make that opportunity a reality.

We own a small business and teach to make ends meet, so we don’t have a lot of extra income to spread around. Our landlord has graciously agreed to allow Abe to live with us, but he has also chosen to raise our rent for the duration of his stay, which squeezes our resources even further. Simply put, we need your help to help Abraham purchase the basics: food, clothing, hygiene products, bus tickets, a phone, and a bed.

Abe will be searching for a job so that he can move into a halfway house and start living as a self-supporting adult. This will take some time, effort, and all the challenges that come with adapting to a new environment, city and lifestyle. We want to support him in this, and we hope you can help us do it.

This is Abe's single best shot at a new life and a second chance. Anything helps, and we'll post regular updates so you can see the impact your donation has made. Please: help us help Abe to become an honest, healthy and productive member of society.
