SHC Behind Our Eyes Series: Meet Michelle

One of the friendliest faces you will encounter at McCreesh Place is Michelle’s.  Growing up as a military brat, Michelle moved around a lot. Michelle was living with her family when she began to experience personal hardships. As the caregiver of an ailing family member and also experiencing some personal health issues, Michelle struggled to keep a job and fought for over a year to keep her family housed. Unfortunately, the house she was living in fell into foreclosure, and her family became homeless. Michelle and her son bounced back and forth between shelter and the street for a year and a half. By working with a Case Manager, Michelle eventually found permanent housing at McCreesh Place and is in the process of helping get her son housed in the next few weeks.
