How HandUp Donors Helped Danny Settle into His First Stable Home in a Decade

Danny, born and raised in Corvallis, Oregon, struggled with homelessness for almost 10 years but today has a permanent place to live. Working with HandUp and our nonprofit partner Community Outreach, he was initially fundraising for a new set of dentures. Then he received incredible news that his dental work would be covered by the Oregon Health Plan! This means Danny was able to use your donations to furnish his new apartment, helping him feel comfortable in the first stable housing he’s had in a decade.

“I just want to say thank you to all who have donated to help me get back on my feet. I haven't had a place to call my home for nearly ten years and I am overwhelmed with gratitude. I am so blessed and so thankful for all who have helped me along my path. I want nothing more now than to be involved in helping others better their lives as you have all helped me better mine. Have a Happy Thanksgiving and God bless.” - Danny

Every donation makes a difference, from supporting dental health to helping someone purchase their own bed in a new home. Thank you for your contributions.
