A Success Story from Youth Housing
This month we are sharing a success story from our Open Door Shelter - West Town. A young person entered the Interim Housing Program with low self-esteem. She had difficulty speaking up for herself and traveling through the community on her own. As staff supported her and accompanied her to appointments, she grew more confident in her ability to navigate through the community and advocate for her own needs. In the final step in obtaining all the ID's she needed, she got her hair done and obtained her state identification card all by herself. She went on to enroll in high school and eventually reunited with her mother.
