We met a young woman who just recently went from homeless to housed, is recovering from addiction and is working hard to get her life back on track...we listened...we cared...and we gave her groceries, help with her resume, job leads, funding for a new photo ID but most of all we gave her hope.
April 23 - No one likes spending money on car repairs. But when you're struggling to make ends meet, that car repair is so much more than an "nuisance"...it is a full-blown crisis ... a catalyst for putting your life into a downward spiral. No car = no job = no home. The tears in her eyes when we recently told "Jane" that we would pay for her car repairs made it clear that, for her, a true crisis had been averted.
