Ron's Story: Finding Hope Again
Last December, Ron was in deep trouble. A year earlier, he’d lost his wife. The radiation and chemotherapy that helped him beat oral cancer left him weak and bedridden. And now, with his savings running out, he was facing eviction from the three-bedroom apartment he and his wife had called home for 13 years. Ron, a former computer programmer, and his wife, a retired medical researcher, had been living without too many worries on their combined Social Security benefits. After his wife died, the loss of her benefits cut the household income by more than half. Keeping up with living expenses was a struggle, so Ron decided to use the remaining rent money to cover the cost of moving somewhere less expensive.
“Then my movers bailed on me,” he said. Homelessness looked inevitable.
“Three meals a day, studio apartment. The situation is ideal. My memory is starting to slip, the the staff at Glasswater Creek bring me my medications when I’m supposed to take them. There are activities – Bingo, corn hole tournaments, church services, and shopping days. I get to socialize with people in the dining areas. I get to mingle with everybody,” Ron said. “Before I’d eat whatever was around, usually from tins. Tuna, sardines, whatever,” he said. Prior to move in, Ron thought his situation was beyond hope, even when Family Promise and CICOA offered reassurance. “They told me not the worry, but I was skeptical. I was amazed how Glasswater took me through all the steps. It was so efficient. They took care of the bureaucracy, the paperwork. It all came together,” Ron continued. “I put all my eggs in one basket. I want to thank everyone for all they’ve done for me.”
Janet is Home!
Three months before she made the decision to look into assisted living options, Janet was just days away from becoming homeless. After her husband’s passing, she spent her days alone, with the company of her dog, Brandi.
Janet was struggling to maintain her apartment on her own, and was facing eviction as a result. With the help of a local agency, Family Promise of Hendricks County, we were able to provide Janet with a safe, affordable place to call home at Glasswater Creek of Plainfield.
Today, Janet thrives in her new apartment, and has made new friends that keep her company daily.
Terry’s Story: Best Day Ever & Finding Home
Mr. Terry is one of Glasswater Creek’s newest residents. Prior to move-in, Terry had lived in numerous hotels, and he even fell to homelessness for a period in his life where he did not have a safe place to live for up to months at a time. When Terry’s caseworker discovered the services and care provided at Glasswater, she knew this is somewhere Terry needed to be. Terry came to the community with very little belongings and was worried about how he would get back up on his feet. However, within hours of moving in, Terry let the team know that his move-in day was the “best day of his life so far.” Since his move in, everyone in the community has come to know and love Terry, and Glasswater Creek is so thankful Terry was able to call the community his home.
