Patricia, 67, became homeless around 2020 due to family issues. She was able to find shelter at a Project Roomkey site.  When that program was about to end, she was connected to the nonprofit service provider Harbor Interfaith Services and enrolled in the rapid rehousing program. She stayed a month at a shelter before her case manager found her an SRO (single room occupancy) unit in San Pedro. Harbor Interfaith helped with the security deposit, rental subsidy, and furniture.

Patricia said having a safe place to stay has alleviated her stress and allowed her to focus on her health, relationships, and finding housing specifically designed for seniors. After being on a waiting list for two years, she was recently approved to move into a senior housing facility in Fontana. While “the struggle was real,” she said her experiences taught her valuable lessons about patience and humility.
