A Place to Call Home
Deborah Wilber is a 56-year woman who has a history of drug use, behavioral health issues and has experienced homelessness for about 8 months.
Thanks to S:US, for the past 2½ years Deborah and her children have been living at our Cedar Tremont residence where S:US staff is providing her with behavioral health support including treatment for her drug addiction.
When we asked Deborah what difference S:US’ housing and behavioral health support have made to her life, she responded, “It has allowed me and my family not to be homeless anymore and to provide a place for us to call home.”
Thanks to now having a stable home environment and support services, Deborah was able to complete security guard training and has been working for the past year as a security guard. Deborah is grateful for the support that staff at Cedar Tremont have been giving her which help her stay focused on her goals. “I hope to complete school and obtain my GED,” she said, “I also want to move on further in life and be able to live in independent housing and I would like to remain employed.”
