Meet Heather

Heather grew up in Milwaukee in a loving home. Tragically, she experienced a traumatic event as a teen. “That's basically where my alcohol and drug abuse started from. I was so anxious. I didn't know how to deal with it.” At 19, Heather got pregnant with her first daughter, then shortly after with her second. The stress of being a young single mom and working 70 hours weekly accelerated her substance use disorder. 

For years, Heather was in and out of shelters. Reflecting on when she moved into her new home at Greenwich Park Apartments, Heather said, “I was the happiest person I ever could be. I felt like a person again.” She also appreciates living across the street from Whole Foods where she works full time. The exercise room in her building helps her maintain her health. 

Today, Heather is thriving. “I'm secure and I'm happy and I have a place to come home to every day, and I have good people in my life, and I could not ask for anything else.”
