From Homeless to a Chef – What Motivated Stan
to Make a Significant Change
A few years ago, Stan would be found at Horizon House on a daily basis. Back then, he was battling an addiction and came here to take care of his medical and mental health needs at Eskenazi Health Pedigo and basic needs such as taking a shower, doing his laundry and getting something to eat.
Stan continued in this fashion for quite a while and then something changed. He was no longer satisfied with his current situation and being incapacitated by his addiction. Instead, Stan took steps to go through a Chef training class. He still came to Horizon House for medical and mental health services and lived at a shelter. In addition, something interesting happened. Stan’s appearance began to change. He looked well groomed, rested and content. He also took steps to get his addiction under control.
This new Stan was leaving a positive impression.
Recently, his case manager, Allee, discovered that Stan had obtained a great full-time position as a Chef at a popular restaurant. He had now held the job for a month and continued to stay at a shelter to save his money. Allee is now working with Stan on a housing plan so he can move into an apartment of his own.
When asked what prompted this change for Stan, he relayed that he was tired of being alone, he wanted a family and children. He wanted what other people had in their lives that gave it meaning. In short, Stan wanted what many people want out of life. Allee reflected, “By working at Horizon House, I realize how much I have to be thankful for. I may complain about my family, taking care of my house and more. But at least I have those things which is a wish that Stan expressed and the reason why he made such an important change. I have to remind myself not to take such things for granted.”
As Stan continues his career, establishes his housing and starts down the road towards building a family, we hope he will not take it for granted but celebrates how far he has come.
