"Having a place to live... ...helps my fears and gives me hope."
For twenty years, Anne was unable to obtain permanent housing due to mental illness, substance abuse and limited income. She began receiving daily services from A Place to Start (APTS), VSH's new "housing first" program. She now maintains an apartment and is continuing her journey of recovery.
