You can look at Shawn Brown and sense his high energy and strong sense of self. He exudes a spirit of health. But it wasn’t always that way.
Shawn moved into Project HOME’s 1515 Fairmount Avenue residence back in 2011, and last year, he made a new home at our Francis House of Peace. For much of that time, he struggled with his health, often feeling sluggish and down on himself. His weight was exacerbating an inflamed knee and a bad back. He also was dealing with diabetes.
