I have a friend, a young woman, who has spent the last ten years or so in and out of hospitals and other facilities. Finally, now, they think she'll soon be ready to go off on her own for good. For various reasons, she can't live with family or friends. Are there any organizations out there that could help her find a good place for her to get back on her feet? She doesn't have the money to rent an apartment on her own, and she's not really sure what to do...She's also nervous about living outside of a hospital, because what if medical issues come up suddenly?

Any ideas? Advice?

KP,
Is there a way that she can contact us? We can coach her through the process and connect her with the services that can help her to transition.
