Success Story: Doyle

In the summer of 2018, Doyle packed two suitcases and took a train from Mississippi to Chicago, in search of a better future.


The 28-year-old Army veteran's life in the Windy City got off to a rocky start. When his living arrangement didn't work out, he found himself on the streets, struggling to survive.

That was when Doyle learned about Inner Voice, where he enrolled in our Homeless Veterans Reintegration Program. Next, he participated in our three-day Veterans Job Readiness Seminar, offered monthly. Shortly after that, he attended a job fair, where he interviewed with five organizations, and got three job offers. The job he accepted was with Inner Voice!

On November 1, Doyle started his position as Case Manager with Inner Voice's Chronic Homeless Initiative. He says he took this position because "I don’t want anyone to fall into the same situation that I was in. I look out for my 26 clients like I would have wanted someone to look out for me."

A participant in Inner Voice's new Transition in Place program, Doyle moved into his own apartment earlier this month. Now employed and secure, he looks forward to a bright 2019.
