This August, we welcomed a new resident to Ignacio House, Tommy!
Tommy is working as a personal trainer for our community partner, Con Body. After bouncing from place to place, Tommy is finally getting a stable living environment at Ignacio House, something he hasn't had in 28 years. We are delighted to help Tommy for this next phase of his life, while continuing his various certifications in fitness training.
