“I was living with my 94 year old mother; I was her live-in caregiver. She had a stroke and her sister decided that she should go into assisted living. My aunt gave me only three days to leave my apartment. At first I stayed with a friend. Then I called Hands to Help and talked to Lindsey. When she learned I was a vetern she suggested Hope Manor, a brand new veteran’s apartment building. We got an application and she helped me fill it out. After five weeks they called me and offered me a room. Then I applied to work at the Jesse White Veteran’s Hospital. Lindsey helped me answer the questions and update my resume. I got the job! One door closed and two doors opened. Hands to Help paid $20 for me to get my birth certificate and paid a portion of my first month’s rent. Lindsey was extremely helpful. She would listen to me, pause, and then say, ‘I have an idea.’ From that moment everything got better. She’s an angel.” Donald C.
