A Journey From Homlessness

Candi called our Milwaukee office one Friday afternoon looking for shelter. She spoke with our outreach case manager who helped Candi make a plan to be safe for the weekend. On Monday morning, the case manager called to follow up. They talked about options for long-term housing, and the case manager found help for rent assistance. Things were going well for a time when personal struggles and an abusive relationship forced Candi out of her home.

The case manager visited her where she was receiving care. When Candi was ready to look for housing, we helped her get reestablished in her new apartment. The case manager continues to meet weekly with Candi. A grandmother of 10, Candi says that her Catholic Charities case manager is always a resource, “She is my person, my angel. She’s been helping ever since I came to Catholic Charities.”
