From Homeless to Housed with Circle the City



Michael Reilly came to Circle the City after sleeping on the floor of a church next to an outlet so that he could charge his pacemaker.  Prior to that, Michael worked in high end carpentry and after a series of health complications was unable to work and forced into homelessness.  Michael Reilly, a current volunteer and art instructor at our Midtown Respite Center is an example of how regardless of background and education homelessness is a possibility.  Michael holds an Masters Degree and extensive knowledge in his area of work.  With the help of community partners and Circle the City he was able to regain health and return to his craft.  View his story below.

One thought on “Michael Reilly – homeless to housed”

  1. I don’t know of any pacemakers that require regular charging. Most pacemakers have a generator (battery) that usually lasts ten years. I wonder what kind of device the author is describing here?
    In any case, it’s wonderful news that his man has stable housing.
