Annie Works to Create a Home

*Annie enjoys going to church, taking long walks & visiting local parks. She also found herself in homelessness after health complications made it increasingly difficult to work and she had a property dispute with her landlord. Annie is hardly alone: the CDC reports that “homelessness is closely connected to declines in physical and mental health; homeless persons experience high rates of health problems” that lead to unexpected medical bills, difficulty working, and otherwise destabalizing health, security, and well-being. Annie’s first step was to utilize our Homeless Healthcare Access Program to get her health under control. From there, she successfully worked with a Case Manager to create and execute a housing plan. We’re thrilled to share that she successfully moved into independent housing and is currently enjoying decorating her new space with antiques and flea market finds!

“I learned a lot about appreciating all the goodness PADS has to offer in their program. It is important to know there’s a shelter. PADS is willing to help you out with anything you need help with which was really nice.”
