Another Chance House provides a second chance

Another Chance House works hard to help homeless men start new, by providing them with the tools they need to get back on their feet, starting with housing.
The seventh and final housing unit of the Victory Duplex Project was completed and blessed thanks to the sponsorship of the St. Thomas Apostle Church of Amarillo.
The unit, which is far from mediocre, will help to house two veterans.
Another Chance House residents work hard to follow the rules of the program and get themselves back on their feet, but they would not be able to do it without the support of the community.
"We provide them everything they need to survive including room and board, food, everything for basic survival, but they have to work on themselves, on their general issues, on their character defects," said Resident Manager, Bobby Nixon "The combination of those two things helps provide and help recreate a productive part of society."
The Pronews 7 crew asked one resident what it meant to him when he was accepted by Another Chance House and how it's helped him turn his life around.
"I feel 100% better. I'd given up. I lost my wife of 37 years, two years ago," said Resident and Vietnam veteran, Leroy Nupe "I just started giving up after she passed away. If it wasn't for them I probably would of gave up and who knows where I'd of been."
Those in the program said they appreciate Another Chance House and the second chance they've been given.
