Dave and Shirley


Dave and Shirley came to Together for rent assistance. At the time, they were staying in a hotel, paid for by Red Cross because they lost everything in a house fire. Dave and Shirley were both unemployed. Shirley had been laid off six months prior from a job that she had held for four years. Dave was unemployed for sixteen months after being seriously injured from a ladder fall. He was having a hard time finding work and obtaining disability.


Dave and Shirley found a landlord that let them move in without having to advance a deposit or rent payment prior to moving in. After meeting with one of Together’s intake workers, they were approved for rent and deposit and received furniture and household items from our store to help get them started.


Together was able to help Dave and Shirley with our own resources, and we connected them to other programs in the community. One of these resources was a disability attorney that helped Dave get disability assistance. Together also connected Dave and Shirley with employment agencies to help them with their job search.


Both Dave and Shirley were very grateful for the time that Together’s staff listened and helped them problem-solve what seemed overwhelming to them.
