TAKING A MOMENT

TO LISTEN

 

An individual in our ESG program has had chronic kidney failure for the past three years, and saw a specialist for the first time this past week. Due to homelessness, lack of income, mental health issues, and lack of transportation, he has not had medical care for over two years until recently. TVCH Case Management has made this possible. He now has a primary care, a behavioral health doctor, and is beginning to address his serious illnesses one day at a time. The individual shared with us that, "No one has ever believed in me. No one has ever taken the time to listen. You've been there for me when no one else has been willing to, and I know that this is all in God's Hands."
