“Libby entered Desert Vista after a long battle with addiction and chronic homeless. With long-term support from her JFS case manager and mental health specialist, Libby decided it was time for the next step. She enrolled into the local technical college for Medical Assisting and graduated with honors just over a month ago. Libby is now working fulltime job at a local urgent care, has rekindled her relationship with her daughter, and is planning on moving into her own apartment in Palm Springs. We are so excited for Libby and are blessed to have been given the privilege to walk with her on her journey for the last four years.”
