Eugene is a man who is full of faith and always looking for ways to improve his life. He is also very proud of the hometown where he was born and raised, Cleveland, Ohio. It was in Cleveland where Eugene first began working in home improvement and gained valuable experience doing building maintenance for the public school system.
Like many of our participants and those experiencing homelessness in our country, Eugene experienced a life-altering event that left him struggling to find employment and stable housing. He was living in Nashville, TN, and walked into an organization he felt could offer him the help he needed, the Salvation Army. He was provided with temporary shelter and a case manager. It was through his case manager that Eugene was introduced to Shelters to Shutters.
Eugene was a great fit for the program and was soon hired as a Groundskeeper at Crescent Communities’ newest property in Nashville, Crescent Music Row.
“My favorite part of the job is the independence and the growth opportunities offered in the company. I am excited to keep growing until I reach my goals and potential in life. Because as long as you have breath in you, you are never too old!” – Eugene
