Homeless Project 2023

This is an example of how the Residents in Action, Inc. Homeless project in partnership with the City of Jackson in the 2022/2023 winter season helped a homeless man.  Prior to being placed in a warm and safe hotel room, he was living in his van and had struggled with homelessness for three years after losing his trailer when he complained about the slumlord not following through on maintenance issues.  The homeless project offered peace of mind, relieved his stress and allowed him time and focus to address his health issues as well as to get personal business matters in order while he had a stable place to stay.
