Original Text

So to make that determination, we decided to create a pilot, and Keta was one of the 17 chronically homeless individuals we included in this pilot. She had been on the street for 20-plus years, had mental health issues and was a severe alcoholic. The first night in her apartment, she put her belongings on the bed and slept on the floor. The next three nights, she slept out by the dumpster near the apartment building. With the aid of her case manager, she moved back into her apartment but continued to sleep on the floor for several nights. It took over two weeks for her to develop enough trust and confidence that this apartment was hers and would not be taken away from her before she would start sleeping in the bed.
