Special Reunion

Rosie Gonzalez has been David Whidbee’s case manager since he moved into Casa de Francisco (CDF) in October 2012. David had been in Immaculate’s shelter first, then housed in the agency’s permanent supportive housing program in a scattered-site apartment since 2008. CDF was the perfect place for David; it has 24-hour security and having his case manager in the same building as he lived allowed Rosie to closely monitor him and his company. David had to succeed at CDF -- he was at risk of losing his housing certificate which would mean he would be back on the streets. As David’s case manager, Rosie worked with him to succeed in maintaining his housing by saying “no” to people who had negative influences on him.

While on this new path with David, Rosie came to learn more about him. She learned that the last time he saw his son was 2003 when he came to visit David at the Hartford YMCA prior to going to Germany to serve in the army. It was a long time since he saw or spoke to his son.
