Why did you choose Café Reconcile?

“Before I came here I was living at Covenant House. When I was living there I had my counselor, who is my favorite person, my most trustworthy person. I was going to go into Job Corps, but she said “I don’t think job corps is up to your potential.” And she sent me here to get my interview. At first I really thought I wasn’t going to like it. But, I’m here now, I’ve been here for a little while, and I like it.”

If you had a bumper sticker, like a personal motto, what would it be?

“It would be don’t take life for granted.”

What gets you up in the morning?

“What gets me up in the morning? I really like it here. Café Reconcile is a motivation to me. When I came here I really wasn’t knowing that. I was just sitting at home, getting into a lot of trouble, and this has been a life turn for me.
