Women's Shelter Success Story: Mirabelle

Beds in the Women's Shelter
After experiencing homelessness on and off over the course of seven years, Mirabelle found herself at our Women's Shelter in late 2013. At almost 60 years old and living with persistent mental illness which caused her to believe that people were trying to harm her, it was a challenge for our staff to build a working relationship with her.

In January of 2014, she began working with a Case Manager. Over the course of several months and with the persistent and compassionate effort of our staff, Mirabelle was able to trust the Crossroads team to help her find housing.

When an opening in one of Crossroads' housing units became available, Mirabelle was ready to end her homelessness and move in. With the support of our generous funders, we were able to stock Mirabelle's apartment with basic furniture and supplies for cooking and cleaning.

Mirabelle moved into her apartment last week, and with the stability of her own roof over her head she will now start to work on obtaining an income source.  Without our services, the dedication of our staff, and the support of our donors, she would not have had this opportunity to rebuild her life at the age of 60.
