One Step Away: A worldwide search for family pays off
After 30 years estranged from his family, 82-year-old Sam Foster, known affectionately as “Mr. Sam,” is soon going to be reunited with them in England. His journey of homelessness and dedication to finding his family seemed stalled in a series of Philadelphia shelters and on the city streets, until Mr. Sam came to RHD Fernwood, where a dedicated staff found his long-lost relatives and worked to get him home. “I am a believer that true family is key in support, whether it be the ones we are born with or the ones we create,” Sheena High, MSS/MLSP ’13, Mr. Sam’s Case Management Supervisor, said. “If we all have the opportunity to reconnect to it after whatever amount of time and after whatever reason that separated us we should all do it while we are alive.I always want to help those who are willing to help themselves first and he is that type of man, so it made it easy for me to be an advocate on his behalf at every level of this journey with him.” Click here to read the full article.
