James, a legally blind Vietnam veteran, recently flew to New Jersey to meet his guide dog, Mack, and train with him for two weeks before bringing him home.
Since moving into a new apartment and cooking his own healthy meals, Thomas has lost 11 lbs. and been able to cut down on medication he needed to control his blood pressure when he was homeless.
Two orientation sessions have been scheduled for new volunteers in the Emergency Shelter.
Meet Brandon. He was homeless for 12 years, bouncing from shelter to shelter, couch to couch. Brandon struggles with a myriad of health issues, and he is legally blind, which makes it very hard to get — and keep — a job. You may have seen him around town washing windows when the weather allows. Our Outreach & Engagement team met him living on the streets.
