The Ruiz Family
Jennifer came to Together for rental assistance. Her husband passed away six months prior and she had been struggling to pay rent and raise four children on her part-time job.
Jennifer had searched for less-expensive apartments and houses, but could not find anything adequate that she could afford in South Omaha. She did not want to move out of South Omaha, as her entire support system existed there. She was also receiving help from her aunts, but that resource wasn’t going to last forever.
Together was able to help Jennifer and her family by paying her rent and connecting her to local pantries for food. We also referred her to an agency that could help her find more affordable housing.
