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.
