*Lloyd’s Story

*Lloyd’s journey is a testament to resilience and the transformative power of support. Formerly a manager overseeing a team of 12 at the Department of Transportation, Lloyd’s path took an unexpected turn due to insurmountable differences, ultimately leading him into homelessness.

Living out of his car, with family support not an option, Lloyd’s situation was dire. That’s when he found hope at PADS Lake County. Embracing the Housing First program, Lloyd embarked on a seven-year journey of growth and empowerment. With dedicated case managers, he honed crucial life skills, equipping himself for a brighter future.

In a pivotal turn, Lloyd was granted the Housing Choice Voucher (HCV). Embracing this opportunity, he has not only secured a stable living situation but thrived in maintaining his unit and budget effectively. Today, as he looks back on his progress, Lloyd is deeply grateful to PADS Lake County for being his steadfast ally.

As he envisions the road ahead, Lloyd’s optimism shines bright. His aspiration to transition into Assisted Living in the coming year speaks volumes about his determination and drive. Lloyd’s story is a reminder that, even in the face of adversity, with support and determination, a future of promise awaits. #SuccessStories#HomelessNoMore
