Tragically, Carlos was shot on Memorial Day (May 29th, 2017) after being robbed in Nashville. While he became unconscious and suffered greatly from his wounds, he was able to hold on for three more days until his family was able to visit him. He passed peacefully on June 1, 2017.
Carlos was always a positive and loving man, who loved dancing and helping out his friends and family. After returning from the war, fighitng the battles of PTSD, and readjusting to civilian life, one organization that was able to help him get back on his feet was the Church of Another Chance (CAC). The mission of CAC is to set God’s people free by walking in solidarity with each other to realize that God’s endless love sees all of us as whole and worthy of leading lives of importance, meaning and purpose.
By August 1, CAC expects to open the first transtitional living house that will provide rooms and services for 8 men. Nearly 70% of the men this organization serves have no suitable place to go once they are released, no transportation, or no form of identification. This may be the largest single obstacle these men face as they seek to bring to life the mission statement they have created while in our programs.
Please consider donating to this wonderful organization that has helped Carlos and many other men make a positive impact on their future.
