Widowed, In Debt and Depressed

Bonnie became homeless for the first time in her life after the passing of her husband.
Unable to support herself, she became depressed over her debt and loss. She came to Bethlehem Haven to find temporary shelter and medical aid. “Transitional Housing gave me time to relax… I felt safe and was able to get the rest I needed,” Bonnie explained that the staff at Bethlehem Haven helped her acknowledge her strengths and motivated her to become self-sufficient once again. Two programs and months later, Bonnie signed a lease to her new apartment, charmingly located in her old neighborhood. Today, Bonnie is pursuing her dream in the culinary industry – received a certificate for Keys to Effective Communicating at CCAC, an acknowledgement by the National Retail Association for Customer Service and is currently working at the Pittsburgh Community Kitchen.
