Taking care of an elderly parent is very hard while being homeless. Valarie made time to see about her loved ones while she was looking for permanent housing. The light at the end of the rainbow came when she received a call that would change her situation in more than one way - a job training opportunity and a voucher for housing assistance. STH was able to provide tools she needed for the training. Valarie expressed her gratitude to her case manager as she made the following statement, “I am so thankful for all your help. I had no idea that I would find the support I needed when I became homeless.”

- Told by Pam Key, Director of Client Services
