A Cowlitz County resident experiencing homelessness was assessed and placed in the Love Overwhelming emergency shelter.  She had experienced a traumatic life event which led to her homelessness. As her healing process started she worked with the LO emergency shelter staff to access my case management program.
She developed goals, a safety crisis plan, and established medical and crime victim advocacy services.  We developed a budget and financial goals which led to her exiting shelter and obtaining permanent housing."
This is one example of how Love Overwhelming staff support local people who are experiencing homelessness with increasing their self-sufficiency.
