Chris is a certified peer recovery coach at TRI-CAP, a probation residential center that offers an alternative placement option to jail or prison for male or female offenders within the state of Michigan. He also serves on the board of directors for Restoration Community Outreach (RCO), Saginaw’s only other shelter exclusively for men.
But through my work with our two other shelters that serve men, I have seen the need for a homelike environment for men experiencing homelessness similar to what Mustard Seed and Emmaus House offer. A place where men who want to move forward and be productive have another option. A family of staff and volunteers to put them in motion, going toward their goals, teaching skills and helping them achieve things. This is the environment we envision for The Well.”
