Lending a Hand

Tom decided to walk to Phoenixville from Ohio because he was starting to get out of shape and wanted to lose weight. He shared that he has been traveling state to state for the past 25 years. Now with a deep cough he knew he needed to get out of the rain and get home. Case Manager Nell reached out to his landlord in OH to make sure that his subsidized apartment was still waiting for him. The property manager explained that he was 2 months behind on rent and he needs to catch up soon or they will begin the eviction process. After Orion helped him get a Greyhound bus ticket to get home the next day, Tom declined help him with anything else…food, rain jacket or clothing. He was overjoyed to have found a ride home and left Orion with a smile across his face.
