Congratulations Phillip and Bonkers
One of our newest lease signers standing with his companion dog, Bonkers, signed a lease recently! Phillip started working with VMC Street Outreach in November of last year, got into VMC’s Foyer and then joined the VMC Resource Center. When asked before his lease signing if he was excited. He said that he was very excited but stated that he was most excited for Bonkers because he has not been able to come off his leash in months. He will finally have a place to run around without the leash. Congratulations Phillip and Bonkers!

Building New Lives
Our Minvilla Manor case managers preparing a special cookout lunch earlier this month for residents! With COVID continuing to impact social activities at Minvilla, VMC staff also continue to create special moments and activities. In this case, case managers cooked the meal and let residents come and pick-up to take back to their apartments to enjoy. Thanks to our case managers, Dustin, Sid, Pete, and Yvette for helping our residents build new lives in housing.
