Air Force Veteran Moves Out of Homelessness

William has been moved out of homelessness into his very own home!

The 70-year-old Air Force Veteran came to John’s Place (ECHO’s transitional housing program for Veterans) in November, after spending almost a decade experiencing homelessness. Over the last 3 months, he worked with his case managers to achieve his goals – including meeting with a job coach, applying for benefits, and finding safe, affordable, permanent housing.

William is so thankful for the donations of home goods he received from the community – comfortable bedding, kitchen supplies, bathroom necessities, and food in his cabinets. ECHO Housing Case Manager, Kim, went above and beyond to set it all up…and make his new housing feel like home.

Welcome home, William!
