Virginia, a YMCA Supportive Housing Campus resident, shares her story.
Before coming to the YMCA Supportive Housing Campus, I was living in an unsafe, rundown apartment that I had to get out of. My life has changed for the better since moving here. I have a lot of health problems but living here makes it easier to take care of them because I am not as depressed, stressed or fearful. This is the best place that could have happened to me.
My favorite part about the Y is that I am comfortable and feel safe. I like the activities, care a lot about the people, everyone is nice and the staff is great.
I see myself still living here in the next year because I like it. I also have some things holding me back from getting other good alternative housing but the Y accepted me.
