Help families like Sam...
Sam turned to us for help with his mortgage. He was struggling to catch up from losing his job and had been embarrassed to ask for help. Bills were starting to pile up. He's a single Dad, raising his young daughter, and he knew he needed help. He was able to find work fairly quickly after being let go, however, he went several months without income. When he came to us, he explained that he makes a little less than he used to, so things are tighter than before. One of our advocates was able to help him with a month's mortgage assistance and then suggested he visit our food pantry weekly to help offset some of his bills until he is back on track.
During his meeting with a Family Resource Advocate, he said that his main concern is always his daughter and that she was starting elementary school soon. He was feeling even more financial stress from the additional expenses that come with schooling. We were able to provide clothing vouchers for the MRC Resale Store for his daughter to pick out some new clothes and shoes. Sam also attended our Back to School Fest and received school supplies which was a huge relief for Sam and made his daughter's day when she was able to pick out a unicorn backpack!
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. On behalf of our staff, volunteers and clients, we appreciate your support!
