Randall is Reaching His Goals

Used as Russell
We are so proud of Randall and everything he has accomplished at Glade House. In just under a year, he has gone from homeless, unemployed, fighting addiction, and not taking care of his physical or mental health to housed, employed, sober, and fully compliant with his medicine regime.
 
 

Nights at Grandma’s are Back

After months of couch surfing Bettie ended up in a shelter with no idea of where to go next. She was referred to House of Ruth and worked with our case managers to find a stable place to call home.
Her greatest joy is having a safe place for her grandkids to come visit. Nothing is more fun than a sleepover with grandma.
