Places for People helped me turn my life around and get confidence in myself again.
Velma connected at a vulernable time.
When Velma connected with Places for People in 2007, she had just completed a substance use treatment program. Velma says her drinking caused her to lose relationships with friends and family members.
"They've always been there for me."
Velma connected with an Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) team, and met with team members four times a week to establish goals. She established a medication routine, developed coping skills, and was able to move into her own apartment.
