Terri has been a part of Sheltered Living since 2011 and receives TCM services from us. Terri had been living with her mother who deceased and then started living by herself . During that time she rarely went anywhere outside of the home or had any contact with anyone who was not family.

Once Terri began receiving TCM services from SLI, planning was focused on developing her self identity and connecting her and connecting her with health and mental health providers. Because she is now effectively treated , she has been participating in many SLI activities and volunteering weekly at the Helping Hands Humane Society.
