The Only Option

You are here

Ms. G’s story began in the winter when she left an abusive relationship and had to live in her car. She eventually called the Your Way Home Call Center, entered shelter and received an appointment at the Norristown Housing Resource Center. While working two home health aide jobs, she looked at several apartment units, often following-up on leads from Ann Garcia, Housing Locator. Ms. Garcia eventually found Ms. G an affordable efficiency apartment in Norristown and she moved into the unit in March. Ms. G now works for just one home health agency and has increased her income, while saving some money. After six months of assistance from Your Way Home, she will be paying her full rent in November. As she prepares to exit from Your Way Home, she will be meeting with a Clarifi financial counselor to review her income, expenses and savings plan to ensure her stability.
