has now almost completed his rehabilitation. He is one of the young
people who received an Edges Personality of the Year Award. He
entered our Reconcile Project in total confusion and despair, he had
experienced homelessness and was trapped by a life of Heroin
addiction and crime. He came to us and we gave him support in the
community with his drug problem and accommodated him in one of our
units. We provided a gateway from homelessness into rehabilitation
and we continue to support him in his rehab, and will be there when
he comes back into the community.
Ryan states:- "I
owe my life to Father Jim and the work of T.H.O.M.A.S. It has helped
me change my life and I am pleased to accept this Award".
