“I have been homeless for a long time and what Dragonfly Village has done is keep me off the streets and allowed me to live in a safe environment and not be homeless anymore. I do not work due to a disability, but now I am thinking I will be able to do something now that I do not have to worry about housing”.

“I came from Amity Circle Tree Ranch after 4 years of treatment for addictions. I never thought I would have an opportunity to live a sober life. I have my children back and in my first apartment at Dragonfly Village. My children are extremely happy here and enjoy having their own bedroom. The past six months have been new and exciting step in the right direction for me and by kids. Dragonfly has given me hope that dreams can come true”.
