“I never thought I would be homeless,” said Terry. “I had a regular everyday life, with a family, a home and a job. I’m also a proud Veteran.” His life changed, but he was doing alright on his own, until his landlord lost his rental subsidy paperwork.
Once he lost his housing, Terry spent his days finding a meal, a shelter for the night, and figuring out how to be safe and survive. Fortunately, he was referred to Touchstone. Terry’s life changed when he moved into Minnehaha Commons and received support from Touchstone staff.
In recent months, there is a surge in the number of people in the Twin Cities, who are homeless. Many are living on the street or in a tent, as fears of COVID keeps them from going to a shelter.
We expect even more people will lose their housing when eviction restrictions are lifted. There is a great need for Touchstone programs that help people find and keep their housing. Our staff receive phone calls each day, asking if there are openings in our housing programs. It’s hard to tell someone there is a waiting list.
You can give now, to support people like Terry, so they have a home.
