ProJo: Subject of Journal story 'Redemption' lands job with recovery program

PROVIDENCE — Mark Gonsalves, whose story of recovery was told in The Journal this weekend, has been hired by Amos House.

Gonsalves has credited the social-service agency, along with other organizations and individuals, with helping him successfully address the depression that was a factor in his 2015 suicide jump from the Pell Bridge, which he survived.

“Mark has been hired as a house manager in our Men's Recovery Program,” Amos House head Eileen Hayes said in an email. “This is the program he graduated from. The program is a 90-day treatment program for men (and women) who are homeless and recognize that their addiction is getting in their way of their ability to stay housed and accomplishing their goals.”
