Mary became homeless with her four children after leaving an abusive relationship.”
The family moved into an apartment building that is part of the new Housing First pilot project where Mary received ongoing case management support from a local agency. The goal of this project is to help individuals and families overcome the barriers to being financially stable. One of the first challenges is often finding a job with a reliable income that will allow them to live independently. With the help of her case manager, Mary learned to set goals and take steps to achieve them. She successfully completed the program and the family is now living in their own home.
