A red 1986 rusted truck is what brothers, Dennis and Mike called “home” for over five years. Things looked up when they were able to rent an RV. However, the “bug infested box” as they call it, cost them $450 a month. No working toilet. No shower. No running water. That was “home” for another restless six years. Mike, working since he was seventeen, did not make enough to afford a decent apartment for both him and his brother.
Nancy used to sleep in her car. When she lost that to an accident, she slept behind a dumpster on pieces of cardboard.
After two years of experiencing homelessness, community members rallied to support Nancy and connected her to PATH Ventures. Now she has her own apartment, and was reunited with her cat, Ash.
