There were other cases this month as the cold became serious. Many times, Joshua House Inc. was able to offer referrals and these referrals make the difference. One example: A homeless 73 year old woman sleeping in an abandoned store at Green Mountain Mall. JH counselor (Brenda) took over care for her from Darcy McCann, Chamber of Commerce. Darcy had to leave town and Brenda made calls over Thanksgiving weekend to this woman. She was able to get into Collanade Motel in Lyndonville. Brenda also talked to the management there and JH was going to pick up a night but due to severe cold, the state paid. The call Joshua House Inc. made to Capstone enabled this help. Darcy had a good lead on a subsidized apt. for her.
There are always twice as many cases as payments due to caring case management.
