“I lost everything including my place to stay and a lot of items that I cherished. I had problems just keeping money in my pocket. That’s when I told myself that I just didn’t need to live like this any more,” said Jeff who is a US veteran.
Jeff sought help from our veteran services department for assistance and resources to help with housing, transportation and employment. “There are plenty of resources out there to help veterans, but it is hard to take that first step. “Without Easterseals Crossroads, I would probably still be lost and trying to find my way back,” said Jeff.
