Elmer Alvarez was living the nightmare. He was homeless with no ray of hope for a better future. But, destiny had something else for him.

He found the check on a street in New Haven, Connecticut and he reached out to Dr.

Roberta Hoskie to return it. Moved by his honesty despite living a life with nearly no money Dr. Hoskie arranged a place for Mr. Alvarez to live and arranged an interview with one of her business acquaintances. Out of sheer gratitude she also offered free classes for him in her real estate school, because she hopes that it would help Mr. Alvarez to live a better life in the future.

Once homeless, Dr. Hoskie truly feels how difficult life can be for a homeless person. She had one condition for him – whenever Mr. Alvarez gets back onto his feet he must help other homeless people. It was all very emotional for both of them when she revealed the award for his honesty with a home.

He couldn’t thank her enough and God for turning his life in an unexpectedly beautiful way. He was also given a certificate of gratitude by Dr. Hoskie. To Mr. Alvarez, there are angels in heaven and on Earth, when he returned the check with sheer honesty and expected nothing in return, the miracle happened.


Merry the homless man cried when she heard that he wont get cold anymore. isnt it so amazing to feel when you help someone in need. the blessings will come back to you in ten folds. God bless this man forever as long as he lives and God bless those other homeless as well.

Railene It is good that he is getting a chance to get on his feet. Everyone deserves an honest sh-ot at that but it really hard to cash a 10k+ check so it is not like 10,000 cash.
