After being laid off from his job as a welder, Fardeen didn’t know where to go or what to do next. He found drinking to be the only solution to his problems. “The more I drank the more I wanted,” said Fardeen. “Alcohol seemed like the only thing that could fix my problems, but it only made things worse.” This addiction seemed like it was never going to stop. Fardeen realized he needed a change, and he needed to turn his life around. He found a place at Alliance Apartments, which offers a sober environment for chemically dependent, formerly homeless adults.
“Alliance gave me more than an apartment – it gave me a place I can call home.” Fardeen explained. “This home has given me a sense of safety and community that has helped me get my life back on the right track.” Fardeen now plans to give back to the community. He hopes to teach welding and share his experience and knowledge with others.
