Dean is a single father of two children. His oldest son is developmentally disabled and in need of special care. Because of chronic back issues, Dean was not able to hold a job, which caused him to lose his home. Dean turned to The Road Home for help.
Dean worked with his case managers to get approved for one of The Road Home’s housing programs, and was able to qualify for disability benefits. Dean found an apartment that would provide a safe place for his children and was near schools that would help his oldest son.
Once moved into his new home, Dean continued to work with his case managers as well as the Department of Workforce Services to find a stable job that would comply with his disability benefits. Dean is now at a job that he can do even with his back issues and is saving money for the future. He and his children are happy in their new home and glad to be in a place where they feel safe and secure!
