Peter was a former client who reached out to us for help when he began battling with chronic health issues and was unable to make ends meet. In September 2019, after securing a roommate and receiving some financial assistance, Peter’s life appeared stable.
Late fall, Peter was evicted from his apartment when his roommate abruptly moved out. For months he stayed with numerous friends and family, but eventually found himself sleeping in his car. He knew, however, that this wasn’t livable and he needed help.
Last month, Peter connected with New Hope Church who put him in a motel temporarily. A conversation with Linda and Ryan at LCAC led to a connection for Peter with New Hope Housing’s homeless outreach staff. Peter is in safe housing, receiving medical and long-term housing support. Together, LCAC, New Hope Church and New Hope Housing are helping Peter start again.
LCAC is always working with our community partners to address every household’s unique circumstances and create sustainable solutions for our neighbors. Thank you to our community partners, our friends, and neighbors for working with us and helping to change lives in the community.
