Ryan lost his job as a chef when he had to care for his wife, while she suffered through numerous illnesses. He and his family were on the verge of eviction when he came to BCM and received help to pay a portion of his rent. Since then, Ryan has employed his skills and experience as a chef to open a food truck. The business is doing well and he envisions that it will soon become profitable enough to provide for his family and keep him from needing financial assistance again.
