| Have a Seat. You’re invited to provide a meal for someone in need. Ronald’s Road to Recovery Started with a Hot Meal at Bread and Roses Café|
Ronald lost his job at the age of 60 and soon ended up homeless; his life soon spiraled out of control. Frightened and hungry, Ronald found his way to Bread & Roses Café. While there, he couldn’t believe the dignity he received. “I was shown so much kindness there,” he remembers. Ronald started to look forward to his daily meal and the human connection he felt at the Café. Soon, Ronald worked with SJC staff to help him begin the journey to stabilize his life. Through the Bread & Roses Café, Ronald got mental health support for his PTSD and depression. Today, Ronald lives in permanent housing and is ready to start the next chapter in his life–opening his own carpentry business. “I urge people to give to Bread & Roses Café,” Ronald says. “It helped me stabilize physically and mentally.” Donate Hello Richard, After the pandemic struck the LA homeless population, St. Joseph Center’s Bread and Roses Café experienced a significant increase in costs and a 63% increase in meals served daily.
