We recently received a referral for a family of four, including a recent widow, two adult children and one that is 17 years old. Two of the three children have permanent disabilities. After the father passed away the family ended up living in a motel. We were able to get the family out of the motel and into their own apartment that they can sustain on their own. By helping them pay a security deposit, they will now be self-sufficient.
Through our wrap-around services they were also connected with The Dorit & Ben J. Genet Cupboard, and our Financial Assistance Program had an extra dining table that the family is now using. I just finished dropping everything off. They are extremely grateful.
