A veteran suffering from severe Bi-polar Disorder had been near homeless for some time. He was staying with his 92-year-old mother. His mom lives in a mobile home court that does not allow any overnight guests. The mobile homeowners threatened his elderly mom with eviction, so the veteran had to leave. Now he was truly homeless.
He came to our office and explained his situation to our Services Director, Bob Julian. We were able to get him emergency shelter at a local hotel. We also put him in touch with a contact from the VA’s HUD-VASH Program which has the resources to find him permanent housing. The veteran warmly smiled, shook his head, and said Thank You.
