Turon was one of the first clients at OpenDoors, then known as the RI Family Life Center.  He was part of our employment program when he got a job at a wholesale warehouse.  Since then, he has been promoted twice, and is now a floor manager.  His success eight years later is testimony to the lasting effect that OpenDoors has on many of our clients.

"I got tired of struggling because of my old ways," Turon remembered, recalling his decision to leave a life of crime. "Before, I was living day to day.  Now that I have a job, I can live for my family.  Sometimes I work 105 hours in 2 weeks.  Life is still a struggle, but it is a good struggle now, and I can manage it."
