- Fabio, 45
Prior to living on the street, Fabio had been living in Coconut Grove, working as a DJ. The life was fast paced and introduced him to drugs. He was one of the first brothers to be found by Outreach in 2016. Fast Housing found him a place in a rehabilitation facility in West Palm Beach; however, his sobriety did not last longer than 6 months. Outreach found him again a few months later, and placed him in a home among other brothers. While Fabio found his passion for cooking, he is currently working in construction as the pandemic has forced many chefs out of their positions.
