When you meet Victor Lockhart for the first time, you can’t help but smile. Though gruff on the phone, in person the “Mayor” (as he is called by his case manager due to his warm demeanor and ability to work a room) is warm, funny, and prone to long stories about growing up in Seattle.
This is a story about Jonah, a young man who came to Lifelong in search for help with his struggle with homelessness. Along the way, he received emotional support, words of encouragement, and a new lease on life, thanks to his case manager. Read their story, written in their own words.
