Despite many despairing nights of sleeping in their car, couch surfing, and living on the streets, Thomas and his life partner were still hopeful and motivated to get housed. After six years of homelessness and medical issues, Thomas and his partner finally found housing! 

Their journey began with building a strong relationship with Mental Health of America case manager, Kendra, who connected this family to housing services and PATH Problem Solving Specialist, Ana. PATH LeaseUp’s Leasing Specialist, Denice, learned of their story and sprang into action to locate permanent housing with Housing Provider, Altman Properties. 

After securing housing, Denice, Altman Properties, Kendra, and Ana collaborated with one another to ensure a fast and smooth process to allow this couple to move into their new home. Upon signing the lease and obtaining keys, Thomas shed joyful tears and expressed how excited he was to cook steaks in his new kitchen. 

Congratulations to Thomas and his life partner for never losing hope and this determined team for helping our homeless neighbors find their way to a new home!
