The Perfect Fit

Jack, a disabled veteran with PTSD, had been homeless for more than a year, living in his car. A longtime cross-country truck driver, he could no longer drive due to back pain and had to put his mother in assisted living. His Social Security disability application was in appeal, and he was awaiting VA housing.  

Jack was angry and stressed when he arrived at Catholic Charities. Fortunately, there was an opening at an 8-unit property close to his mother. A referral for a Catholic Charities’ senior dining program also helped.  

Jack has finally been approved for Social Security and likes how his neighbors look out for each other but still respect one another’s privacy. It’s the perfect fit.
