A Home of Her Own
Jennifer Lawson is a former philosophy graduate student who was diagnosed with severe OCD and Schizophrenia during her studies. After 5 in-patient stays and 5 attempts to re-enter the workforce, she has decided to take the advice of her doctors and apply for disability, a long, drawn out process. An upstanding citizen, honor student, and multiple award winner who has always given to her community, she now faces poverty and homelessness. Ms. Lawson is currently raising funds to purchase an equal, safe home in her area. Housing is one of the major barriers for people with mental illness, and housing is part of a comprehensive care plan. Please visit her site and donate whatever is meaningful to you.
