A Journey to Mental Wellness
Windy’s journey of homelessness began in 2012. Exasperated from years of Windy’s inability to address her mental health and after several domestic disputes, Windy’s husband John dropped her off at Haven for Hope.
It was not until Windy came to Haven, did she realize or recognize, the role trauma had played in her life. For the first time, Windy received in-depth psychological treatment and medication. While at Haven, Windy was able to obtain various benefits such as Medicaid, Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and food stamps.
Shortly after her mental health stabilized and improved, Windy was able to obtain housing which allowed her to live independently in the community. Today, she is living with John and her children. She is continuing with her mental health treatment, as well as her medication and credits hard work and Haven for her success. Windy, we wish you continued success!
