On the Verge of Becoming Homeless

Able to help create a bridge

On the Verge
Last week a family was referred to us that was on the verge of becoming homeless. Both mom & dad are hard workers, but in early December dad had a fall at work and hurt his back and neck. Without his income, the minimal amount they got from disability and the time it takes for the workman’s comp to come through, they fell behind and were not able to pay rent. With an 11 year old and the threat of homelessness being very real for them, we were able to sit down with them and develop a plan for getting through this season. We were able to help create a bridge over these troubled waters, pray with them and let them know there are neighbors who care.
