Overcoming obstacles

Denise arrived at Twin Oaks facing more than just homelessness: she was newly blind While at Twin Oaks she worked hard to keep the community kitchen clean. She was also very involved making crafts as gifts, and served as an inspiration to the others living in the shelter. 

Denise found an apartment in Burlington, but plans to come back to volunteer at Twin Oaks this spring.

Do you know someone who can become our next success story?  Our application is now available online.

What we're learning this month

Twin Oaks residents participate in mandatory workshops during their 90-day stay. These workshops supplement our one-on-one case management to ensure families are ready to move past their housing crisis.

In April, Twin Oaks families are learning about anger management, health awareness, personal perception and gardening.

Have a workshop idea? Call us at (262) 882-3662.
