I called Brophy and explained my housing situation, I met with the engagement and intake worker and we worked out that the Foyer would be a soultion for me. I have been a resident for eight months and am starting to plan my exit into independant living. I’ve learned SO MUCH! And it’s been a safe and stable place to regroup at.
