Meet Gregory

You are here

We love to share our clients' success stories as helping them on their journey is the reason we come to work every day. Read Gregory’s letter to Michael, our Seattle housing program manager. After Gregory was released from prison, he got involved with the FareStart training program in Seattle and they referred him to Pioneer’s transitional housing program. He utilized Pioneer’s resource center for services he needed at our transitional housing in Seattle, and is now living in one of Pioneer’s affordable permanent housing programs. Recently, we were informed that he landed a great job with the city as a Public Outreach and Engagement Liaison (POELs). Bravo Gregory, you make us very proud!

Mike,

 Good morning. I have some exciting news to share with you!

I will be working on several projects and would love to get the input of Pioneer on the ones that are pertinent to the work that you do. Having been a resident and your biggest cheerleader, these issues are important to me.

Pioneer is as much a part of my success as anyone. Your program laid a foundation from which I have continued to build-on.  None of this would be possible without you. So, I salute Pioneer for everything you have done for me. If there is ever anything that I can do to assist Pioneer or share the great work that it does, please don't hesitate to ask. I will forever be indebted.

Gregory
