30.L&L – Melissa Miltenberger

After living without permanent shelter, it can be hard to navigate what your next steps are. For Melissa Miltenberger, a resident at the South Bend Center for the Homeless, it only took a few hours of exploring Bendable to begin setting out a path for herself. After two weeks in the center’s training program, which utilizes Bendable to help those like Melissa get back on their feet, she has found resources to help her identify her skills and guide her to potential fields, including caregiving. “It’s already built my confidence up a lot,” said Melissa. “I know I can be a productive person in society.”
