Charles and Tina's Story
When the government shut down occurred in October 2013, Charles became unemployed. Charles and his wife, Tina, were referred to People Incorporated’s Supportive Services for Veterans’ Families (SSVF) program from The Salvation Army. People Incorporated assisted them in fi nding housing. The SSVF program assisted the Whites with rent, utilities, and home goods (bed and dishes). Charles, as of May 2014, has temporary employment and is seeking full time employment. The case manager continually assists him in his job search in order to improve the White’s income situation.
