Success Story: A Way Forward

July 31, 2017 Success Stories

Jenna came to the shelter with her two young children, Sam and Abby. She had just left an abusive partner two months earlier, and had been staying with a friend.

Jenna cried as she told us about how hard it had been financially. She ran out of money to buy clothes and basic school-supplies, not to mention a place to live. It was so bad that she had considered returning to her abusive ex-partner just for the financial support. (A common occurrence.)

Thankfully, we were able to help. We supplied her with donated gift-cards to allow her to buy necessities for her family. We were also able to provide her with leads on affordable housing opportunities. Jenna left with a smile, and a sense of hope.
