Mr. Phillips had been homeless for 10 years, mostly living on the streets in the suburbs of Houston. Finding food and a place to bathe was a big challenge for him. He had family in the Houston area, but they didn't offer him any support. Nonprofit partners of The Way Home worked with Mr. Phillips through outreach and case management visits and were eventually able to get him into a permanent housing program.
When Mr. Phillips moved in, the Welcome Home Fund provided him with a Welcome Basket full of cleaning products, linens, utensils, and more. These items are often the key that helps turn someone's new house into their home.
"It'll take a little while to get used to [this]," said Mr. Phillips, "but it feels wonderful."
