John is originally from New Orleans, Louisiana, but lost his home during Hurricane Katrina. As fate would have it, he chose to relocate his family to Port Arthur, Texas. He is a single dad to five children, ages 3 through 16. When Hurricane Harvey hit, it wiped out his community in Port Arthur, so they were moved to a shelter in Dallas during the relocation efforts. In September 2017, we were able to move John and his children out of the shelter at the Dallas Convention Center and into a new home in East Dallas. Thanks to Bryan’s House–they are thriving!
John is a humble man with great integrity. He worked immediately to connect with the resources Bryan’s House provided and those we referred him to. His children are now in school, well cared for, and have plenty to eat. He has a full-time job and is looking forward to what the future holds. His youngest son, Elijah, attends Bryan’s House and is reaching goals ahead of expectations.
On September 15, 2018 the Green family celebrated their one year anniversary of living in their new home in Dallas!
