WASHINGTON - The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) today launched the latest story in the “Humans of HUD” campaign, a series that features inspiring stories of individuals who have overcome hardships with assistance from HUD.

The newest video tells Bonita’s story of overcoming hardship. Bonita received assistance through Project HOME, a Philadelphia-based nonprofit funded through HUD’s Continuum of Care program. In the video, she shares her previous struggles with homelessness and addiction, explaining how a HUD-funded organization helped her overcome it all and find a place to call home.
