Chris’s Story


A great success story from The Teen Project, operator of The Teen Project’s – The PAD in Venice, CA, one of the many Venice Forward agencies working to end homeless in our community.

Chris had been homeless for two years in Michigan after his adoptive mom lost her fight to cancer. Our team heard his story and was immediately hooked. From that moment forward we took him as one of our own. Timothy Pardue, our new PAD manager took Chris under his wing and spent the next three days by his side, even taking him to a Clippers game. The following Tuesday we were able to secure a bed in an amazing 9 month rehab program. After rehab we will help him in the next phase of his life to gain stable permanent housing and employment.
