Lucy was 21 and a college dropout. She ended up being evicted from her apartment due to her roommate bailing, and she couldn’t pay the bills alone. She didn’t have enough money for a deposit on a new home, and now she had an eviction on her record. We took her in and made sure she had a place to stay and eat. She worked hard and managed to save up enough money for her apartment. Now she volunteers regularly at our shelter, knowing what we do for our community.
Steven had been homeless for 20 years, and he never thought he’d see the end of it. He was a long time sufferer of schizophrenia and drug addiction. We provided him with substance abuse treatment, and he used our psychiatrist to help him find a medication that would work and not interfere with his recovery. He took advantage of our resume building class and computer skills class and has managed to move on with his life finally. He lives in a sober home with other people his age. They are all sober and are given assistance in managing the money they make. He got a job as a janitor at the local library and has been clean ever since.
Marietta was kicked out of her home by an ex-boyfriend and had nowhere to go. She had a part-time job, but it wasn’t enough to pay bills, so she found herself on the streets. When she made her way here, she used our networking to find a job that could actually help her save. Now she lives on her own and is quite successful in her day to day life, which she credits to our shelter.
