MACV Veteran Story: James
“It was surprising how much my mental health improved from having a place to call home.” -Housed Marine Corps Veteran James
After losing his Mom and facing financial struggles, James spent a year living out of his car. But everything changed when he found MACV. Working with his case manager, James swiftly found affordable housing, and within a month, he got his keys!
MACV also connected James to Bridging, providing him with essential household items. Joyfully, he shared, “I now have things I never knew I could have!” Since settling into his apartment, James has been attending college, landed a managerial position, and is almost debt-free!
