Saul, 25, was living with his parents when a family disagreement landed him in jail. With nowhere to go after his release and no support network to lean on, he fell into homelessness.

Saul was referred to Home At Last through the LA County Department of Social Services, a re-entry program to support men in regaining housing stability after they are released from jail. 

Through Home At Last, Saul received comprehensive services to help him achieve long-term housing stability, including regular therapy appointments and support in producing the essential documents he needed to apply for employment and begin his housing search. He began working with a housing navigator who helped him enroll in the Time-Limited Subsidy program, which enabled him to quickly move into a permanent apartment. Saul also began working with a case manager to update his resume, complete job applications, and prepare for interviews. Eventually, he was offered a job at El Pollo Loco.
