Victor, 53, lived in Skid Row after his family could not care for him. He has diabetes, peripheral vascular disease, bilateral amputation, and hypertension.

The National Health Foundation referred him to the JWCH Recuperative Care program, which enabled him to receive prosthetics and occupational therapy through the LA Christian Health Center.

JWCH also helped Victor submit an Emergency Housing Voucher application through LACDA. Once approved for a home, the Homeless Incentive Program will assist Victor with the security deposit.

“I feel really good about being able to get an apartment and have a Section 8 voucher that will help me pay my rent so that I don’t have to be homeless. I am able to live a better, peaceful life,” he said.
