Good morning #riverside! Stopped on my drive home from an early morning walk with a friend to snap this shot. What a gift to exercise and catch up on life while it’s still dark, cold and early. Walking along historic #victoriaavenue this time of year brings orange blossoms as well as rigorous cardio. Started this day with a #gratefulheart ❤️ #iloveriverside

From the City of Riverside Office of Homeless Solutions:
Meet Derek. Derek Jackson Jr. is 30 years old and has been homeless for 3 years. He previously lived in Jackson, Michigan and after experiencing a divorce and financial hardship he sought opportunities in California 3 years ago. He worked a seasonal job at Kohl’s in San Bernardino and  floated around staying in hotels and motels for over two years, and spent the last few months living on the streets. He faced hardships with hunger, lack of money, loneliness, sleeping on the ground, and temptations. He looked for a shelter in the San Bernardino area and when he couldn’t find anything, he found Path of Life Ministries Shelter here in Riverside and took a Lyft to get to the shelter.
One day, while seeking job opportunities, he met City of Riverside Homeless Outreach Team Member Mike Whitham and he asked him for work. Mike pointed him in the direction of fellow team member Adrian, at the Access Center, where he learned about the Riverside At Work (RAW) program and applied. He feels so happy to finally have a place of his own, to grow, and to have a sanctuary that he can call his. He’s an aspiring actor and once he completes the Workforce Development job skills training program, he hopes to become a chef.

Good things are happening in our city on a daily basis. Some of those happen before our eyes, and some a little more behind-the-scenes. We are here to share those stories with you:
Recently, we had the opportunity to interview Karena Ramirez at her new Permanent Supportive Housing Unit. Unfortunately, after losing her business, she and her 12-year-old daughter became homeless here in Riverside. Karena did not give up; her heart and determination never wavered. Throughout their struggle, her daughter maintained exceptional school attendence and Karena was able to utilize valuable resources and ultimately find success by participating in the Riverside at Work Program.
Karena says she is grateful to be able move forward and is planning to return to school herself.

All areas of the Library are being designed to offer maximum flexibility so the spaces can easily be changed as needed in the future.
