Amanda lives in a new home, holds a steady job and saves her money.
One would never guess that just a few years ago, she was battling substance abuse. Broken mentally and spiritually with nowhere to go, she decided to make a change. She enrolled in Tomorrow’s Hope, a substance abuse program of SafeHouse Ministries, a United Way of the Chattahoochee Valley Community Partner.
Amanda needed more than a recovery program – she needed a home. While participating in the substance abuse program, she lived at Trinity House, a United Way funded program of SafeHouse Ministries.
Within a few months, Amanda found a stable job and began saving her money. But, she still needed a permanent home.
Amanda called 2-1-1, United Way’s Information and Referral Line. 2-1-1 connected her to United Way’s Home For Good program. Home For Good conducted the standardized assessment conducted by CES Administrators, and she received a referral to the Rapid Re-Housing program at Homeless Resource Network, a United Way Community Partner.
Thanks to the collaborative help of these community partners and United Way, Amanda found a new, permanent home and lives a great life!
