Vinton, Jamaica

Vinton escaped to the United States in 2011 after enduring horrific abuse in Jamaica because of his sexual orientation. Vinton still bears the scars of these many attacks, and yet he continues to have an unwavering faith in God and hope for the future. Vinton has an extraordinary work ethic and has pursued educational and professional opportunities in the U.S. to develop his career as a certified home health aide and nursing assistant. He has a tremendous energy and passion for helping patients with disabilities who need his care. He is also the proud father of a bright teenage daughter who recently reunited with him and her mother in the United States. Vinton tells us, “I love to help—it is my heart.”
