Pursuing Hope, and a New Job: Robert Gaskins

With hopes of gaining skills that would lead to full-time employment, Mr. Robert Gaskins accepted Samaritan Ministry's invitation to join the March 2017 STRIVE job readiness training. However, his hopes ended on the first day. 

Lack of funds was causing Mr. Gaskins issues at home, in his relationships, and with being able to attend the training itself. Mr. Gaskins was so desperate that he had thoughts of committing illegal activities for money.
