Sometimes, Change is Hard - JM's Story
from David P., DRC Case Manager

JM had lived on the streets for a long time. He had become accustomed to watching every penny he had and being leery of others. Thanks to the DRC, JM now has an apartment of his own. But JM was not going to be able to retain his lease on his apartment until he signed up for renter's insurance.

For most of us, insurance is a no-brainer. But when you've spent years looking out for anyone who may swindle you our of your limited funds, mistrust and misunderstandings happen.

Thankfully, your DRC case managers Nubia and Denise spent time with JM, listening to his concerns, gently walking him through the concept of renter's insurance, and helping him to understand the critical need for him to take out a policy.

Their patience paid off! JM signed a policy and was able to retain his housing - all because two special people took the time to treat JM with dignity, respect, and compassion.
