July 13 -"Lynn" is never late with her rent. Her landlord said as much. But life tossed her a curve ball - unexpected expenses and a temporary reduced work schedule. The perfect storm hit and now she's a bit behind in rent. Minutes after discussing with her landlord - explaining she could catch up soon, this was taped to her door. Now, you could view this at face value - a landlord is a business person and a lease agreement is a binding contract. Or you could view this as a member of a community, a neighbor...as someone who has perhaps also had no choice but to "rob Peter to pay Paul" at some point in their lives. Thank God our donors see beyond face value and view their community with empathy and compassion.
June 24 - "John's" story is a long one...a history of poor choices in his youth still haunting him today. Released from prison several years ago, rebuilding a life different from that of his youth, has not been easy. Who'd of thought prison wasn't actually the "bottom". Last week, "John" started along the road to rebuilding with a new focus...a new job...and a new-found hope.
