Dwayne came to UESF’s Veterans Program on December 20, 2016. An Army veteran, Dwayne served in the Iraq war and suffered leg injuries during combat. At the time he came to UESF, Dwayne was living at a Veterans house in Coatesville and wanted to exit the shelter system and return to his home city of Philadelphia. Due to Dwayne’s injuries and PTSD, he required a secure home with disability access in a quiet, peaceful area. His low-income and combat injuries made it difficult for him to find proper housing to suit his needs or provide a security deposit.
