We celebrate each step taken towards independence, because for many of our clients, these steps are brand new to them. One of IOM’s clients has been a part of our program since November 2020. Recently, she was able to obtain identification, open a bank account, and complete her taxes for the first time in her life. She has also maintained stable housing for a few months already. As someone who has battled with severe addiction, she has made considerable improvements to leave her previous criminal lifestyle behind.
