Keith Kelly was seeking a place to live on his own and heard about Independence Now (IN) from some friends.
He worked with a team at IN including Shannon Minnick, Director of Independent Living Services; Abiola Heyliger, Montgomery County Independent Living Specialist; and Debra Potts, Independent Living Housing Specialist.
Keith says he has become more independent since working with IN. “I have a foundation that’s a whole lot and gives me more gravitation in my life, knowing which way I want to go and how I’m going to get there. That alone was a real big deal to me.”
When asked what he would say to someone who was facing similar obstacles as he was before connecting with IN, Keith says, “First and foremost, I will say just keep praying and keep your head up. Keep plugging in whatever you are doing just stay positive. I went through the same cycle of being in that position or situation and then I went into a program called Independence Now and before you know it, I ended up with my own place! Every scenario is different, but I can tell you this much if you plug in you will get some positive results.”
