In Their Own Words

"A real homelike atmosphere. I feel healthier since I'm here."

"Without HABcore, I'd be in the street. I have no family to take me in."

"It's a nice place. I feel safe here. I'm helping out. I love pitching in."

"I've been in a lot of homes and apartments. This one turned out to be just what I needed."

"This is my home. This is where I feel safe and secure"

"The program is great. The staff go out of their way in every way to help. They are more like family."

"The Habcore program has been a professional, caring, and important program since my first contact with Ms. Von Pater. I have received assistance in all areas of life. Knowing I am safe and cared about may be the most important aspect of the program. Meal supplements and transportation that one does not even expect from one's own family. I personally would be lost to the street if not for Habcore and all of its caring professionals."

"The staff and all they do has helped me endure some real tough times. They go "beyond the call of duty" and thanks to them, Janice Von Pater in particular, I feel I have made good progress fitting into life again."

"I can live independently with support. Habcore is a blessing. Staff is great. They are wonderful people who are helpful, sensitive, caring and work hard."

"HABcore is the most unique assistance for my disability and circumstance."

"I thank God for how I came to Habcore. ...kicked out of my home and 2 days later HABcore gave me shelter. Thanks to Mr. Heisman... Mrs. Foley - God bless you"

"I am very happy with the services provided by HABcore and especially the help we get from our case manager, Dennis Pestel. He goes all out to meet our needs. He is awesome! I have been so well-treated."

"I love it here at HABcore. It has helped me a great deal. Everybody here is special. I love you all. Thank you for being there for me. You have done a great job helping me to get better in my recovery as I have mental illness. For the first time in my life, Ive been happier than ever before. From the bottom of my heart, thank you very much."

"When I first came here, I had been very sick. I had been affected by a mental illness, and had received treatment and stabilization. I feel like the staff did a really excellent job helping me adapt and were very capable of helping me in the early stages of my recovery. With the help of the house and program I am a lot better and I am accomplishing the goals I have set."
