Sylvia and Anthony
Anthony was a 3 time purple heart Vietnam veteran, and his wife was looking forward to retirement when Hurricane Katrina struck and the levees failed. The day Anthony was turned down for the second time by Road Home, he suffered a massive stroke. The stroke totally incapacitated Anthony, and now Sylvia was the sole caretaker, with no way to earn any income, and no way to rebuild their home. Sylvia called us for assistance, and after 2 years hard work, to rebuild their home and a lot of love and support through our case management program they moved back into their home and their lives became whole again. Anthony passed away in February 2011, but even in his dying days, he knew that his wife was back in their home and would be ok.
