Larry, a Navy veteran who served on aircraft carriers before finally settling down in Souderton 31 years ago, is a client of Keystone Opportunity Center.

He wants to tell you his story.

“I was living in a one-bedroom apartment. The place had changed owners twice since I moved in. And of course, each new owner raised the rent.
What I was getting from social security was not enough. I would get my check, pay my rent, pay my phone and electric. There was nothing left.”

“If it was not for food-stamps and the Keystone food pantry, I would have starved!”

Our Community Case Manager worked with Larry to connect him to numerous supports for seniors and veterans. In Larry’s case, we even helped him fill out the forms.

“Being on social security, you get all kinds of paperwork, but my hands shake and it is now very difficult for me to write. I would connect with Keystone staff who would help me fill out the forms. The case management team connected me with many resources over the years that have been helpful to me.”

“It means everything to have Keystone Opportunity Center there to help me.”

That’s not where the assistance from Keystone ended. We were able to help Larry find housing at a fraction of what he was paying.
