“Welcome home Stanley!”
‘Stanley’ has been calling South Florida home since moving here from Georgia in the late 1960s. Happy to finally have a roof over his head, ‘Stanley’ told Broward Housing Solutions’ Case Manager, Willie, that he is thrilled to be a part of the BHS family. Attending school and working a variety of jobs throughout Broward County, ‘Stanley’s’ life took an unexpected turn ten years ago which landed him on the streets and becoming homeless. “Not having a home and place to go at night was very hard for me and my mental health. I’m so grateful for this opportunity” expressed ‘Stanley’.
Eligible for BHS’ Senior Solutions housing program, this month, ‘Stanley’ moved into his apartment. Senior Solutions is an affordable housing program designed to provide permanent and supportive housing opportunities for individuals aged 55 years and older. Stabilization services provided by his Case Manager, Willie, enable ‘Stanley’ to begin rebuilding his life where he continues recovering, stabilizing, and eventually reintegrating back into the community becoming a contributing member of society.
