Bob, 78, was left early one morning at The Depot, wrapped in cardboard and a blanket. He had been on a harrowing journey between a hospital, rehab facility and shelter. When the Outreach staff found him, he was cold and disoriented with no place to go. Unwanted.
Bob was moved into one of the YNHS medical respite apartments for about a month, which allowed him to gain strength and skills in daily living. Every day, his trust in staff grew. You can see in the photos what a difference some TLC can make. Outreach staff successfully placed Bob at Garden Village, where he can live as independently as possible but gets help when he needs it. This is called “making a difference” and YNHS staff members do this daily.
