Jamie says: “It’s nice to know I have secure housing. It keeps the stress level down.”
Everyone deserves a safe, decent and affordable place to call home. Jamie, 45, moved into the Admiral six months ago. She struggles with bipolar disorder and attempted suicide several times. After her most recent attempt, she left the hospital with a new outlook on life. She says the stability that her home provides helps her manager her stress and mental health. According to Jamie, living at the Admiral has provided her with self sufficiency and independence. Now, Jamie works as a peer mentor where she coaches people with mental health challenges. Jamie loves the location of her downtown building, which is close to public transportation and Director Park, where she attends concerts with her dog, Zeek.
