It is with great pleasure and honor that I share with you my experience with BPB Floyd House, in the hopes it may motivate another to do the same. I had the pleasure of meeting Patricia Shaver by way of her creating a series of online television shows called Voices of Reality. A mutual friend contacted me for some production help, I arrived fixed the problem Pat asked me how much she owed me and I told her zero and was just glad to help and got ready to leave.
It was at this time she stopped me and asked me what my story was? I smile to myself because I can still remember the look on her face! I told her I had fallen on rough times and was staying with a friend that had stolen some personal belongings had no other place to live and felt homeless. It was at this time without flinching she pulled fifty dollars out of her pocket, got me something to eat and gave me a room at BPB Floyd House under one condition, I get job and go back to school.
She looked me square in the eye and said "I'm giving you a hand up, not a hand out" little did I know at the time how much those words are a part of her core values. With her help I was able to get a job and enroll at the Ohio Center for Broadcasting while helping with the product of many shows on Voices of Reality.
A year later I graduated and moved to Florida where I currently live. Within a year I received full custody of my oldest son and have worked in retail for the last three years until a short time ago. My son has maintained a B average in school the last two years and I received a job in banking.
Little did I know a simple question "What's your story" would change my life forever. Now it is my duty to carry on the BPB legacy and offer a hand up to people I see myself in. I could never thank Pat enough for how she has transformed my life, I do show her that her spirit will live on through me and the countless other people that have been fortunate enough to meet her.

If you're looking for a new start in your life and really want to achieve your dreams of re-entering into Society try the BPB Floyd House.
My life was a revolving door for trouble. I was in and out of prison, jail, and chaos. After recently getting released from prison, I made the decision that I wanted something better for myself. I was introduced to the BPB Floyd house program Director. She sat me down and asked me what I wanted to do with my life. I told her that I needed help. I had no place to live and no job. I also told her that I was not looking for anything to be given to me; it was time for me to work for what I wanted to obtain and to achieve the goals I had set for myself.
The director then said to me something that has stuck with me and probably will for the rest of my life. She said Jeremy you need a hand up, not a hand out. From that moment on I have moved forward, I was provided with a place to stay that gave me that starting point that I had been searching for to get my life back on track. I have gained employment, a sense of security, and self-confidence in knowing the fact that this is my time to progress and truly shine. I had never heard or encountered a program like the BPB Floyd House that is so positive and understanding.
The program goes out of its way to ensure positive progression. This is something that you have to want for yourself. You cannot expect to be given a second chance in life it you're still stuck on the mistakes of the first chance.
This is my story and I'm grateful and Blessed to actually be able to share it with others who are or have struggled to get it together.
