Landing a Job When No One is Hiring

Guy and Nichelle Peoples went from happy to hopeless in 2010 when they lost their jobs and their home. Find out how they got their life back. Read Transcript


Reporter: 2010 STARTED

OUT WELL ENOUGH FOR GUY AND

MICHELLE.

SHE WAS A LICENSED

VOCATIONAL NURSE, WHILE HE

WORKED PART-TIME AND TOOK

CARE OF THEIR TWO

DAUGHTERS.

BUT BY JUNE BOTH HAD LOST

THEIR JOBS, AND NO ONE, IT

SEEMED, WAS THAT HIRING.

FIVE DAYS LATER, OUR

ELECTRICITY GOT CUT OFF.

Reporter: AFTER THAT,

CAME THE EVICTION NOTICE AND

THEIR FAMILY WAS HOMELESS.

I JUST KEPT SAYING, HOW

DID I GET HERE?

THAT'S A HARD PILL TO

SWALLOW.

Reporter: DID YOU EVER

IMAGINE YOU WOULD BE WITHOUT

A HOME AND HAVE TO DEPEND ON

OTHERS TO HELP YOU?

NO.

UH-UH.

I'VE ALWAYS BEEN ABLE TO

TAKE CARE OF OUR FAMILY.

Reporter: THEIR FAMILY

NEEDED HELP, AND THEY FOUND

IT AS PATH OF RIGHTS

MINISTRY SHELTER IN

RIVERSIDE, CALIFORNIA.

CBN IS PROUD TO PARTNER WITH

"PATH OF LIFE," BECAUSE THEY

GIVE FAMILIES A SECOND

CHANCE.

DAMIAN IS THE ASSISTANT

DIRECTOR OF THE SHELTER.

THE PURPOSE OF THIS PLACE

IS TO RESTORE AND REBUILD

LIVES.

WE DO THAT BY HELPING PEOPLE

IN A MOMENT OF CRISIS, WHEN

THEY'RE HOMELESS, FAMILIES

WITH CHILDREN, AND GIVING

THEM A STABLE PLACE TO LIVE,

AND THEN WORKING WITH THEM

TO FIND HOUSING AND

EMPLOYMENT.

Reporter: THEY BELIEVE

IN EMPOWERING PEOPLE BY

TEACHING THEM THE LIFE AND

WORK SKILLS THEY NEED.

GUY FOUND A NEW CAREER

THROUGH THE ACCELERATED WORK

PROGRAM.

AS OF OCTOBER 18th, I

GOT MY LICENSE.

BECAUSE I REALIZED HAVING

WORK EXPERIENCE ISN'T GOOD

ENOUGH.

YOU NEED TO ACTUALLY HAVE A

CAREER.

AND NOW I DO.

Reporter: THE FAMILY IS

NOW IN TRANSITIONAL HOUSING,

ALSO RUN BY "PATH OF LIFE."

AND THEY CAN STAY UP TO TWO

YEARS.

AND MICHELLE IS BACK TO

SCHOOL, PURSUING HER DREAM

OF BECOMING A REGISTERED

NURSE.

Reporter: ARE YOU

EXCITED?

I'M VERY EXCITED.

I TRY NOT TO BE, YOU KNOW.

Reporter: GUY AND

MICHELLE SPEAK FOR MANY OF

THE FAMILIES THAT YOU ARE

HELPING THROUGH YOUR GIFTS

TO CBN.

I WOULD JUST LIKE TO SAY

THANK YOU.

I THINK WITHOUT "PATH OF

LIFE" I WOULDN'T EVEN WANT

TO IMAGINE WHAT MY DAUGHTERS

WOULD GO THROUGH.

Reporter: AS FOR AIR

ARIANA AND NIANA, THEY ARE

DOING JUST FINE.

I WOULD SAY THANK YOU TO

AWFUL THE PEOPLE WHO HELP

AND APPRECIATE US VERY MUCH.
