Long-term housing, long-term hopeChloe is a 21 year old young woman with a lot of hope, motivation and charisma. The young mother of a rambunctious young toddler, Chloe had a lot to celebrate this June at YSB’s Long-term housing program’s annual barbecue.

As a single mother, Chloe was able to refer herself to the Long-term housing program at YSB. Clients normally would access the transitional housing program to qualify. She graduated from Algonquin College from the Practical Nursing Program and has a future goal to return to further her studies in the field. She was recently hired at the Royal Hospital under a recent graduate program and will most likely obtain a full time position.
Though it was sometimes hard to juggle motherhood and school demands, the shy young woman was happy about how far she’d come. Here is Chloe with her worker Christine Castonguay, during barbecue cookout with her neighbours at Long-term Housing.
“I am so incredibly proud of this woman; I can’t even tell you how far she’s come for this. She kept focused on her goal areas and was always so grateful to staff,” said her worker, Christine Castonguay.
