Amara’s Story

December, 2023

 Amara was living in a tent behind a dumpster after being kicked out of a nearby shelter when she first came to our Drop-In Center. Her Case Manager worked with the shelter for Amara’s re-entry. Since staying there, Amara has been working full-time overnights. Through regular meetings with her Case Manager, she learned a unit had become available at HOPE Place. Unfortunately, Amara was missing the necessary documents she needed to live at HOPE Place. Through our partnership with Anoka County Mental Health, Amara was able to acquire the paperwork. Amara is moving into HOPE Place next week! She was extremely appreciative of the support she received. Amara is thankful to have a safe and supportive place to go if she needs help again.
