Eric is a 52-year-old man who is currently staying at the EGM, while his 14-year-old dog is staying in his car (parked outside of the Mission). Eric was fired from his roofing job and then lost his housing. He wants to go back to work, but says his knees can’t handle roofing anymore. Lauren met with him and offered support as he is realizing that he needs to relinquish his dog to the shelter. He is understandably heartbroken about this. Lauren has been working on finding a long-term housing option for him, but has encountered difficulties. She had Eric call 211 to get into the Homeless Management Information System (HMIS) and will continue to work with him. (November 2015)
