“I didn’t think I’d be able to get help.”

Ron had returned to his community after being incarcerated for nearly 30 years. He had lost touch with family and friends during that time, and was looking for work. While he waited for his SNAP benefits to start, he had no food, money, or transportation. He hadn’t eaten in 24 hours, and decided to call PA 211 to see if there was any immediate help available for him.

A PA 211 resource navigator assessed Ron’s situation, and was able to give him contact information for six nearby agencies that help with emergency food, beds, and furniture. Ron got a meal delivered to his doorstep that very day.

“I never imagined I’d receive this much kindness and care.” -Ron, SW PA
