HOW helped Janine connect with a new housing voucher program for disabled people under 60 so now her disability income can go further to meet everyday living expenses. The timing was especially important as Janine’s progressive condition impacted her ability to work part-time this year.
How did we do it?
By working with Janine and our community partners: Provincetown Housing Authority and Housing Assistance Corporation! First, Janine made an appointment here at HOW and we discussed her concern re: housing costs and income, then together we called the Housing Assistance Corporation and Provincetown Housing Authority to learn more about her options. We followed up with Janine by email and phone to be sure she had the assistance she needed to see through the process of applying for the voucher.
Like many HOW clients, Janine occasionally volunteers to give back to HOW and the HOW community — here she is helping us with the holiday gift bag program!
