John, Jane, and their three young children became homeless due to drug dependency and family issues.”
The family moved into an apartment that is part of a new housing pilot program where John and Jane received ongoing case management support. The goal of this program is to help families overcome barriers to being financially stable. With the help of their case manager, John obtained a permanent full-time job and Jane went back to school and is now employed full-time. They were able to move into their own apartment and buy a vehicle. They overcame their dependency on drugs, started paying off their debts, and are now looking forward to being able to spend more time together as a family.
