Miracle on Portland’s streets

Street Roots and Leah Nash recently highlighted¬† Melissa and Sean’s lives and their struggles with mental health and homelessness. Through the stability of Street Roots and working with JOIN, we have a success story. Melissa and Sean recently signed a new lease for an apartment and we are happy to report they will be safe and warm for the holidays.

Also, if you read Melissa’s personal account, you’ll know her and Sean’s love for knitting. A reader and Street Roots supporter brought yarn down to the office for the couple to enjoy. (Thanks Sheila!)
