The Story of Tammy

After surviving domestic violence and other life-altering events, Tammy found herself experiencing homelessness. For over five years, she had been able to access resources from Salvation Army and a local women's center, while living unsheltered between streets and tents.

It wasn't until Tammy was connected with Volunteers of America (VOA) in Conroe, Texas, that she began to gain back the hope that she had lost. Through VOA, Tammy was able to get connected with The Way Home's Permanent Supportive Housing resources and begin the process of finding a home of her own again.

Tammy has recently moved into her new apartment, filled with new furniture and move-in essentials courtesy of the Welcome Home Fund. "Words cannot express how grateful I am to have a place to heal and start to grow deep roots," said Tammy

Thanks to donations to the Welcome Home Fund we are able to offer stablizazation for Tammy and other clients like her.

Coming next, we have a project that is aiming towards Housing Harvey's Homeless. Local studies reveal that nearly 20% of unsheltered homeless individuals, and 50% of “first-time” homeless individuals, are homeless because of Harvey.Hurricane Harvey not only caused an increase in street homelessness, but also created a homeless population with unique and ever-changing challenges, such as severe behavioral health issues and expanding encampments. The ability to quickly transition these vulnerable individuals off the streets and into housing is crucial to responding to these emerging issues. This project will need the same type of on-going support to help welcome those whose lives were forever changed by Harvey, Home.
