Welcome Home, Dennis!

This week's Monday move-in story spotlights Dennis in Bellflower, CA.

A Vietnam era veteran, Dennis spent 15 years homeless on the streets of Bellflower, CA in an area known to local police as "the Jungle." On Friday, his case manager, Kim, got word that permanent housing had become available for him. "I had the day off," she says, "but I could not bear the thought of him staying out on the street one minute more."

Kim went out to find Dennis that morning, and that afternoon he moved into his own apartment with the help of Kingdom Causes Bellflower, one of the organizations leading Bellflower's 100,000 Homes Campaign effort.

Welcome home, Dennis!

(Other phenomenal organizations participating in the Bellflower 100,000 Homes Campaign effort include Our Place Housing Solutions and PATH! The Bellflower community is also a member of the 2.5 Percent Club.)
