Project Description

Melissa is a Army veteran who was living in her car with her boyfriend and teenage daughter, when we met her back in April. She had been displaced from her toddler because she did not have adequate housing. Melissa had moved to the area from out of state and quickly realized how expensive it was to live in the area. She was unable to move back to her home state due to finances and was very distraught when her baby was taken from her. We have worked to find her permanent housing and get her reunited with her young child. We are continuing to work with her on her VA medical benefits and will begin working on helping her find a job now that she is settled in permanent housing. Melissa is well on her way to turning her life around and has big dreams of the future and helping her community!
