Sherry had a dark past. Drugs, violence, prison time and broken relationships had wrecked decades of her life. When she finished her prison sentence, she wanted to get a fresh start and try to “live right.” She got a place to rent and a job, but when the business she worked in shut down at the same time as her landlord sold her house, she suddenly faced both homelessness and joblessness. CAPS was able to assist Sherry with some immediate funding as well as connect her to organizations that provided job-search coaching and helped her to identify possible housing options. Sherry still regularly stops by the CAPS office to talk through issues and get input.
