After a medical emergency, Kim and her family found themselves on the brink of homelessness. Your support helped keep them housed and now she is thriving!
A year ago, we shared Amy’s story of homelessness and housing instability after she fled domestic violence. Thanks to your support, she was better prepared when COVID-19 hit for the hardships that came along with the pandemic. This #GivingTuesday, help us ensure that 50 families like Amy’s remain stably housed.
Julia is a customer and advocate for people in crisis in our community. Along with her husband and support dog, Princess, she is rebuilding her life thanks to amazing people like you.
Shavonna’s world was upended when her family went from two full-time incomes to almost nothing overnight. She had been making partial rent payments but the debt kept growing and she was terrified of becoming homeless. Then you stepped in to make sure she and her family were home for the holidays.
“In a crisis, we look to the community to show up when we need them the most,” JB says. “And Crisis Assistance Ministry does just that. It is so critical because it allows individuals who are struggling to do so with dignity by providing financial support so they can get through it and heal.”
When we first met Julia, she was struggling to stay housed and grieving the death of her teenage son. Though she was in the lowest place she had ever been, she never lost hope that there would be brighter days ahead.
As Midori joined fellow Elevation Outreach volunteers at Crisis Assistance Ministry last week, she quickly earned the title of “Chief Encourager.” As she began to greet people in cars arriving for curbside assistance, she saw herself in every harried face.
We could all use more empathy during these challenging times. Scott was able to move forward several years ago when he received empathy and emergency financial assistance after falling behind on his rent. Now stably housed, he helps his students and others in the community find their voice.
