Waiting is Hard

You are here

Sally has been in and out of the shelter system for years, even since her childhood.  Issues involving mental health and lack of social supports have created a chronically homeless cycle in her life.  Her connection to Creative Health in Pottstown and now the Pottstown YWH HRC, will hopefully allow for Sally a new start and a path to a sustainable living situation.

Sally’s hope, with her modest SSI income, is to obtain a clean and safe room for rent in the Pottstown area for less than $400/month so that she can have a little extra for monthly essentials.  With the help of the HRC Housing Locator, Wendy Gaynor and continued support of Housing Stability Coach Jessica Scholl, there is a path being paved for a successful and safe living situation located close to both the Cluster Outreach Center and Creative Health Services. 

A unit has been viewed.  An application has been placed.  Now we wait on the landlord to make his decision.
