At age 61, Jane was subletting an apartment with roommates,when one of them assaulted her. Terrified & alone, she fled to a homeless shelter, before finding a small apartment. Since she left most of her personal items behind when she fled, she wrote to Doris Buffett for help. We provided Jane with a refrigerator, toaster oven, and television. That last item—a television—helps to calm her severe anxiety at night. She now works with a counselor, stays within her budget, and lives in a safe environment.
