Since June of 2002, hundreds of “STARs” have been created through a workforce initiative of St. Vincent Health. The STAR (Special Talents to Achieve and Rise) Program, directed and facilitated by Linda Nunley, was launched to give individuals in the community with significant barriers to employment the job readiness and life skills training needed to make them shine. In that same year, a star went out in Linda’s life. On Friday, August 3, 2002, one minute before midnight, the phone rang in the Nunley home, bringing news that the son of Danny Sr. and Linda Nunley, Danny L. Nunley Jr., had been murdered. Life would never be the same.
Out of the tragedy of that dark night a new star has arisen; a star of hope for those in need. Danny’s Closet of Hope came into existence in 2007, as a means to reach out to the community that Linda has come to love, providing professional attire for men seeking employment who possess no other means to acquire appropriate work clothing. Danny’s Closet shines a light of hope for men needing help and serves to keep alive the name of the son whom she loved and cherished.
Since that difficult night in 2002, Linda and St. Vincent have continued serving men and women in central Indiana that need help overcoming barriers to gaining and maintaining employment. As a result of Linda’s ongoing efforts, others in the community have been inspired to come alongside in realizing the dream to establish Danny’s Closet of Hope. This collaboration has produced both a mission and a vision for the future of this important endeavor. It is that mission and vision that will light the way for many years to come for those who desperately need to have hope.
