"The loan from EO has allowed me to gain independence and to give back to my community."
I was in an accident that barely left me able to walk for almost four months. I lost the place that I was living and my car was totaled. I became homeless but was able to stay at the homeless shelter in Nampa.
During this time I was able to get diagnosed and address my mental health issues. Which in turn help me get clean and stay clean from drugs. As soon as I got on my feet I transferred over to the New Life program at the Mission here in Boise. I applied and obtained stable housing. My next goal was to purchase a vehicle and to use my lived experience to become a Peer Support Specialist. With an emergency personal loan through Economic Opportunity, I have purchased a vehicle and hope to complete Peer Support Specialist Training. I'm currently involved in giving back through prison ministries and nursing homes. I've also spoke at high schools for the Idaho meth project. The personal loan I qualified for with EO has allowed me to gain independence and to give back to my community.
Making his vision to help others a reality.
Congratulations to driven entrepreneur Jonathan Amissa on launching Skyroad Medical Transportation -a non-emergency transportation provider in the Treasure Valley. Skyroad Medical Transportation provides ADA compliant vehicles and wheelchairs to transport patients, elderly and people with disabilities from their home to doctor’s appointments and rehab programs. When the pandemic hit, Jonathan was eager to support his community members. He sewed dozens of cloth masks and provided them free of charge to those in need. EO is proud to be a part of making Johnathan’s vision a reality.
