SVdP helped welcome her and her family to their new home

Reeling from a divorce and losing their home, Veronica and her kids were on the streets, bounding from shelter to shelter. 

She was desperately searching for a way off the street when she found SVdP. The case workers in the Resource Center helped Veronica find a home for her family, then referred her to the Bringing Hope Home program so she could also have her home furnished when they move in. 

Now her kids have a soft place to sleep. When they moved in, Irma Leyendecker, one of the founders of the program, gave Veronica a placard reading “Welcome Home,” signifying the new life she had just come into.

"If it wasn't for her, I wouldn't have what I have now" Veronica said, referring to Irma. "I'm really, really, really thankful for having her in my life and in my kids' lives."
