A New Start for Jerry

When a rent increase sent Jerry into the streets, he had few options and no place to stay. Fortunately, he found his way to the Hospitality House. Being a Navy Veteran, he was eligible for a county housing voucher, but applying for the voucher and finding housing doesn’t always happen overnight! Jerry needed time. After his emergency stay had expired, he was placed into the Housing Referral Program and given the time (and resources) needed to obtain the voucher and search for new housing. With the assistance of our case management staff, within a month of entering the Hospitality House, Jerry moved into his new apartment and opened a new chapter in his life! “I’m so thankful for the help I received from The Salvation Army – they helped me get a new start!”

With the new Hospitality House, we are looking forward to serving many other men like Jerry, providing them with the resources they need to break free from homelessness.
