Antlers - valor
Joe worked in the furniture industry for years and lost his job just as his marriage was ending, before he knew what was happening he found himself on the streets. As his car broke down and it became harder and harder to just make it day to day, Joe became increasingly frustrated with finding a job. As much as he wanted to work with no address, or stability he was having a hard time landing anything. After five years on the street Joe was ready to give up. Instead he became an inaugural member of The Trellis Community Impact Team, Joe started helping on projects throughout the city, earning points, being rewarded with gift cards and demonstrating his desire and ability to get back to work. Through contacts at the CIT, Joe received a glowing reference for a job at a local Hotel where he has now been working for almost three years, is no longer homeless and has even earned employee of the month status.
Joe has valor. His symbol is antlers.
