Jamell had a difficult childhood after losing his mother and only parent at age 10. He grew up on the streets of Brooklyn, and ultimately found himself in Charlotte with the hope to start a better life. His hopes changed dramatically in May 2018 when he tragically lost his hand in a workplace accident. Nine months and multiple surgeries later, Jamell’s gained a state-of-the-art “bionic” hand made by Apple. He is now safely sheltered and working with Joe Hamby, our Director of Income Services, to find a meaningful career that will lead him out of homelessness.
Jamell’s quote to Joe when reflecting on his accident and situation,”…you live your life, you’ll cope with this. Life goes on and you’re still a part of it. You’re not alone.” Now, that’s resiliency.
