Kathy’s Story

 

Kathy is a divorced single mother of three. Three months ago, Kathy was laid off from her job as a home health care provider. Last month, she found a job, but after already being unemployed for two months, she needed help making it until her first paycheck arrived.

 

She was scheduled for court where her landlord was going to evict her for non-payment of rent. Together referred her to Family Housing, thinking she may qualify for their HPRP funding. They agreed to help her with two months of rent another agency would cover the balance. Together and St. Vincent De Paul came together to cover the balance owed.

 

Her landlord agreed to drop the court hearing in lieu of all of us catching her up and confirmation that her new job would be able to sustain her.
