Our Impact

Client Impact Stories

Image
During an outreach event at Broward College, a young man who was being tested for HIV disclosed his sexuality to the tester, and mentioned that he was struggling with coming out, and the impact it was having on his mental health. Through the MEGA Men’s Group, he was able to connect with people like him of different ages, races, and backgrounds, and hear their stories and share his own. When it came time to discharge the client, he seemed like a brand new man who was much more confident and secure with himself.

A woman arrived to Broward House’s Assisted Living Facility directly from jail. She is HIV positive, living with schizophrenia, and chronically homeless for 20 years. She participated in our Intensive Substance Abuse Program and received wrap around support services. She believed she was destined for continued homelessness and jail. During her residence at the ALF, she was stabilized psychiatrically for the first time in her life. She gained her physical and mental health, her sobriety and successfully completed probation. She, who had been estranged from family for over 20 years, reunited with her son. 

After 11 months of sobriety, healing and discovering her value, she was discharged to permanent supportive independent housing. She is now living in a fully furnished apartment and receives life skills support on caring for herself and home. She sees a new happy destiny for herself.

A mother of a man who has lived with HIV for 7 years discovered his medications and responded with fear and anger. One of our therapists met with the mother and son to provide education and counseling. The man no longer has to hide his HIV status and has developed a supportive relationship with his mother and other family members.
