Spotlight on Success
Winston Alexander, lived at the Hale IRA in Brooklyn, since 2009. Winston is a very independent man, who maintains a level of productivity & cleanliness. Winston always preferred to live within his own space. He has kept steady employment, and has an active social life. It was assessed & determined that Winston was ready & would benefit from living in his own space- as he was highly independent, hard- working, and would definitely keep it up. One of Winston’s peers moved out & impressed upon Winston how happy he was, as well as the levels of support he still received.
