Project Community Success
Cindy’s mental health was deteriorating when she was referred to Touchstone’s Project Community Success (PCS). She was damaging her apartment and was on the brink of being evicted. Cindy had delusions of people breaking into her apartment and ruining her carpet, so she would constantly clean and wash the carpet. Her son was worried for her well-being and built trust between Cindy and PCS staff. Staff helped Cindy seek mental health care and guidance on skills to manage her mental illness and medications. They advocated with her landlord so she could stay in her apartment. PCS staff assisted her with applications, so she could receive Medical Assistance and food stamps. After working with Project Community Success, Cindy’s life is healthier, more stable and meaningful. She is learning how to live with her mental illness and take care of her apartment. She pays rent on time, has a part-time job, and participates in weekly activities through PCS.
