“Over the last two years I have spent time couch surfing and living in a motel. I connected with The Help Centre and was put in touch with their housing worker and senior worker. I stayed at the room for six months until I received a phone call from the County saying that they had a Rent Geared to Income apartment available. Finally, my own home! I now have my own space, my own home and all with thanks to The Help Centre and their continued dedication to us in the community.” - Client, The Help Centre, a United Way partner who receives monthly funding to support core programming.
