After aging out of the foster care system at 18 and spending 35 years living on Skid Row in Los Angeles, Bobby never imagined that one day he would be working for Goodwill. After a chance meeting with a Goodwill ambassador, Bobby received the tools and resources he needed, as well as someone who believed in him, to help him get his first job ever at 50 years old. Now Bobby serves as a Community Liaison in the same community he lived in for so long, giving others the same opportunity he had to create a better life.
