Review for Beyond Shelter, Los Angeles, CA, USA
Beyond Shelter's program and my case manager are and have been vital in securing me and my son a stable place to live. I am an emancipated foster youth and was emancipated at the age of 18 without the proper support or guidance to help me maintain permanent housing. In February 2007 I became pregnant with my son. I was working at the time but lost my job because of a very difficult pregnancy. In August, 2007, I was accepted into the St. Anne's transitional housing programs for unwed mothers. They referred me to Beyond Shelter. After completing St. Anne's program and moving to other shelter programs, my case manager at Beyond Shelter continued to help me. On December 31, 2010, I moved into permanent housing. I am forever grateful to the Beyond Shelter program for their supportive staff members and all the services that they have provided me with to this very day.
