Three years ago, Dennis Bateman, now 63 years old, moved into his first apartment, Patrick Place on Aurora Avenue North in Seattle. Bateman, who spent decades addicted to heroin after escaping a physically and sexually abusive foster family when he was 13, is now sober and lives in the housing facility run by Catholic Housing Services. “Once I was safe and got a place to live, I just thought ‘I don’t need that anymore’,” Bateman said about his drug use. A project to build a similar apartment building is now underway in Everett. (Ian Terry / The Herald)
