Shari, a 48-year-old single-mother, proudly served in the United
States Army for eight years. She was diagnosed with Post-
Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and depression upon being
discharged and soon fell into homelessness. After living in a
women’s homeless shelter with her daughter Zoe, Shari set out to
find more stable housing. With the help of the Redondo Beach Housing Authority and the Homeless Incentive Program, Shari was able to secure a two-bedroom apartment for herself and her daughter. She feels that finding a home has greatly improved both their lives. Zoe is doing great in school and Shari has plans to go back to school to obtain a degree in social services. Shari is thankful for the Housing Incentive Program and hopes her success story will allow continued funding for homeless families like hers.
