“H” came to us suffering from diabetes … barely able to walk and in need of a safe place to rest. We helped get him stabilized on his medications. He gathered himself and saved some money. He found a wonderful apartment that he can afford.
“CD” is a young man who suffers from severe learning disabilities and mental health issues. He is another kind soul who, when he came to us … illustrated what hopelessness really looks like. He is now functioning well in the aura of acceptance he has found at the Haven. He is now in school seeking to obtain his GED.
“JD” is a paranoid schizophrenic who also suffers from severe sciatic pain. She relies on us, her family, to check her and give her food. She also needs to be watched to make sure she doesn’t become confused.
