On June 8, 2015, Street Roots vendor Edward Allen moved into his new apartment with the help of Central City Concern’s BEST Team and Community Engagement Program.
“I think the best thing about it is feeling a sense of ‘I can do this,’ you know? It gives me hope. I was hopeless for a while, but Street Roots gave me that hope, and the thing is, the dream did come true and I did get keys. I would see people with their house keys and I would think it was far away, you know? But I got my keys.”
