Ready for Business

Dominic first came to the Men’s Mission in 2021 after leaving the PA Psychiatric Institute. He had a difficult childhood, which traumatically affected him.

Dominic was not honest at first with his life coach, so it was difficult to provide him with the proper support. He struggled with suicidal thoughts and had to go to the hospital on several occasions. After he began to open up to our staff, he was able to complete our discipleship course, which is a huge achievement.

Though he left the Mission multiple times, Dominic kept returning by the grace of God. “Even with all his challenges from his past, poor choices and mental health issues, he kept getting back up and dusting himself off,” our men’s assistant director, Don Koch, stated.

On August 31, Dominic graduated from the Keystone Job Corps program, focusing on Material Handling. He has been trained to drive forkliftsand run technical machines, and he has received the necessary OSHA safety certifications.

After years of patience and perseverance, Dominic has grown significantly. He has been transformed from a directionless young man to someone who has set and accomplished vocational goals.

Don Koch reflected, “It brings us hope and gratitude to Jesus, to see a young man with so many challenges, and who seemed so hopeless when we first met him, now excelling and at peace.”

Dominic has come to know Christ as his personal Savior, and he shares his faith regularly with others. He now works at Cresline Plastic Pipe Company, Inc., in Carlisle, PA.
