Thornell Moore

Thornell Moore had an addiction to drugs, alcohol and bouts of depression. His selfjudgment is one of the things that led to his addictive behavior, creating lots of regrets. He had no relationship with his children, his family and friends no longer trusted him and put him out of their homes. He was homeless for nine months. One day, Mr. Moore experienced a moment of clarity, and he knew it was time to ask for help.

He entered the Emery Work Bed Program on January 10, 2018. Mr. Moore stated that the Emery staff helped him realize the importance of making changes for himself and his children. All that he achieved in the last 8 months would not have been possible without the help of Emery’s counseling services, and the support meetings he attended daily. With the supportive services he regained his sobriety.

Prior to leaving Emery, Mr. Moore obtained a ServSafe Certificate for food and beverage handlers. He left the Emery program on August 10, 2018, and now lives in an SRO (Single Room Occupancy). He works full-time as a Head Cook and supervises two employees at the DC Public Schools. He also works part-time as a cook at Providence Hospital.

Mr. Moore is feeling good these days. He has two jobs; he saved $4,500 dollars through the Coalition’s Escrow Program, and maintains a checking and savings account. He says” people trust me and I have learned how to be responsible.” Mr. Moore is proud that he reunited with his daughter and their relationship is getting stronger every day. He is now a firm believer that his dream can be his reality.
