After my Mom died, I became paralyzed by grief, and fell into a deep depression. I had always been a hard worker and a proud Veteran, but I felt helpless. I lost all motivation, and became homeless, living on the River. Isolation made my depression worse.I was in so much emotional pain. In my darkest hour an angel appeared and she connected me to Wallace House.
Now I have an apartment and neighbors who are like family. They are right outside my door. I am especially grateful for their support since I was diagnosed with cancer. I love working in the garden at Cherry Creek Village. I grew up on a farm, and this brings me back to happier times. The Garden is my therapy; I go there for healing.
