A Better Option for Some LUM Shelter Guests
Occasionally the better option for a LUM shelter guest to succeed in getting housing, employment & financial stability is to move. These individuals are willingly “reconnecting” with their family (also willing) in another city/town and “restarting” with better career opportunities, better housing options and a strong family support system. After careful review and approval, the shelter guest is provided a one-way bus tickets to their new home. In 2018, this program served 37 guests providing $4,662 in bus tickets to various places across the country including New York, California and Texas.
