“When [JOIN Outreach Worker] Ledena said she had found an apartment for me, I was excited and nervous. You just don’t jump into feeling free, safe, or secure. The fact is the street is right behind that door. I had lived with my parents and then my family, never imagining I could be a statistic. Now I’m 43 and I’m proud to say what I have is just mine. This has truly been one of the most ultimate gifts of my life. And I’ve made some exceptionally good friends. For now all I can say is thaaaaank you.”-Sybil
