Kathleen’s Story

Feeling optimistic about the future is something most people take for granted, but for Kathleen, who has struggled with mental illness all her 43 years, it represents a victory.

Kathleen, an African-American, has never known stability.  Though treated for her bipolar disorder, Kathleen’s employment and living situations were always chaotic and her relationships with family strained.   She came to Lindy’s Place hoping to stay on regular medication, get job training and make friends.  She has progressed, even with frequent adjustments to her medication.  She is in a job-training program and works in a veterinarian’s office.

“Sometimes I have been angry that my medication and behavior are monitored so closely, but I am slowly learning the things I need to live on my own.  I am so glad there was a safe and stable place for me,” Kathleen says.

Mary’s Story

After 23 years of abuse from a man, Mary finally ended that relationship.  Alcohol helped her cope and she became addicted.  Clean and sober, she came to Lindy’s Place after graduating from a treatment program.  Mary knew she needed much more support before she would be strong enough to find a home and a job.

Mary says, “Yes, I have made great progress.  I look at myself now and realize that coming, to Lindy’s Place has healed me.  I am strong and confident.”
