New Year’s Resolutions are great.  Most people choose to give up chocolate, get a gym membership, sleep more, etc.  Leading up to New Years, we have 4 examples of people who chose to completely change their lives around.  These individuals were/are all homeless, and have resolved to improve their lives in monumental ways.  Goldie’s Place (www.goldiesplace.org) and Dr. Homann were able to be part of the recovery process by giving each individual their smile back.

He was born in Germany, and his family moved to the US when he was two years old.  He works as a handyman in his neighborhood to help support himself.  He had difficulty meeting new people because he was very self conscious about his smile.  With his new smile, he is starting the process to becoming self-sufficient.
