Rhonda, a woman in her early 30s, shows up at the Valley Mission. She is from Ohio and hoping to find herself a better life here in Virginia. She came here to be with her boyfriend, who had family here, but was quickly informed by the family she couldn’t stay with them. Desperate for a safe place to stay she came to the Valley Mission, while her boyfriend stayed with his family. Over the next month, her boyfriend gradually stopped being a source of support and communication ceased between the two. Rhonda floundered for a few more weeks about what to do, despite suggestions and encouragement from Case Management to move forward with her life. Rhonda began applying for jobs and was excited to tell her Case Manager when she had gotten a job. After much encouragement and suggestions by Case Management, Rhonda met with a VCSB – PATH worker, and worked with him on completing an intake evaluation at VCSB. Rhonda continued working and saving money and met with her VCSB and VM case manager regularly. She looked for housing options for several weeks and finally received word that she had been approved for assistance through Permanent Supportive Housing, through the new Valley Homeless Hotline. What started as an expected very short stay turned out to be a 6 month stay, but Rhonda was able to move successfully into an apartment that she will be able to sustain with her income. Rhonda had a happy ending due to the collaborative efforts of the Valley Mission, Valley Community Service Board, both PATH and Case Management, along with assistance from Valley Homeless Hotline.
