This case is about a young veteran with service-related medical issues. He moved back to the Youngstown area. Shortly after, his mother had a stroke. Things continued to get worse. They had $0 income and lost their home. They began to live in their car, the disabled veteran, his mother that is a stroke victim, and a service dog.
Then they lost the car and had nowhere to go. A fellow veteran from the VFW came across the young man and set them up for one week at a local hotel. He was referred to us for additional help. We were able to set them up for a second week with a hotel, food, clothing, and a referral to get permanent housing through the HUD VASH program.
This is how we develop the best solutions, with our veteran friendly associates.
