Delicia, an Army veteran, came to Colorado with her six children seeking a new life. For months they struggled and then, Gone for Good changed everything!
After serving seven years in the Army, Delicia was injured in Iraq and sent home. In rural Louisiana a lot had changed. There were simply no opportunities for her there anymore.
Delicia traveled from Louisiana with her family seeking a new life. When they arrived in Colorado things were harder than she expected. For three months, they were homeless until the Volunteers of America family hotel introduced her to Gone for Good.
With the help of Gone for Good and other local charities their lives were changed. After getting a place in Denver this fall, the Gone for Good thrift store offered to furnish the entire apartment.
When Delicia arrived at the thrift store she was told that she could help herself to whatever she needed. In our interview, Delicia expressed gratitude time after time for the services Gone for Good provided. Today, the family is doing very well.
To learn more about the services Gone for Good provides in the community visit our thrift store at 101 Kalamath St.
