St. Vincent de Paul Louisville has supported Julie in Housing for years. This month she will successfully complete the Move Up process. She saved $600 for a deposit on a new apartment. She will have a Housing Choice Voucher through the Louisville Metro Housing Authority and has graduated from case management. This allows another person experiencing homelessness and in need of case management to enter our program.
MK is currently a client at Ozanam Inn Men’s Shelter. Upon arriving at Ozanam Inn a couple months ago, MK was in emotional turmoil, financial despair, homeless, and struggling with PTSD. Through the collaboration of the Ozanam Inn overnight case management team and the SVDP Mental Health and Substance Use team, MK is receiving effective treatment for his mental illness, has started working, and has a housing plan to exit Ozanam Inn in the next few months. The collaboration among SVDP staff, departments, & partner agencies made this success possible in August.
