A home for Christmas


A Home of her own for the holidays!

Darlene came to Compass at a very vulnerable time in her life. She had been chronically homeless in her electric wheelchair with her three service animals and on the streets for almost 4 years. But she came to Compass Career Solutions for help in March 2020. After months and months of multiple applications and denials, she finally got the call that she had been looking forward to for YEARS. She got approved for an apartment; her very own home!


With the help of Compass, other agencies, and the community, Darlene received many donations to furnish her new home, including a Christmas tree which brought tears to her eyes. She said, “I have not had a Christmas tree since 2017!”


Darlene has stated many times she does not know what she would have done without the support of her Compass staff, Tessa and Silvie. Now she has a new life with her dogs and she is looking forward to celebrating the holidays and settling into her new HOME!
