WENATCHEE — For Lorraine Pettit, the last straw was waking up freezing in her car. Hugh Roberts knew his parents didn’t raise him to be a drug dealer on the streets of Wenatchee. Jonathan Werremeyer was well on his way to drinking himself to death. Amanda Lopez’s drinking caused her to lose her children.
All four were recently homeless. All of them are now — or in Pettit’s case, were — residents of Bruce Transitional Housing, a warm, safe and friendly place where they can reshape their lives.
