I was supported and felt safe, and that is very much what I needed. Advocates helped me understand that I was being mistreated and they allowed all the space that was needed for me to process this. I felt very supported the entire time.
Staff allowed me to figure out what works best for me and never told me what to do. I was able to lead my own journey. I was able to maintain my autonomy and find stability and support with CADA.
The advocates were very helpful and I felt safe and supported while I stayed in shelter. I greatly appreciated all the groups offered in shelter. CADA gave me a home when I didn’t have one.
