Today we placed Catrina and her 5 kids into their own home. They have been homeless since late July due to complications with her assisted housing paperwork. Here is her story in her own words:
“I recently requested security deposit assistance from Off the Streets. I wanted to update you on our situation and to provide the documents that were requested from the organization. The children and I are very thankful that Off the Streets helped us in securing this home. As I stated before we were in a very difficult situation. I have paid the first month prorated rent to the landlord and the children have successfully registered for school and are now adjusting to their new home! In addition, I will complete the last credits of my Bachelor’s degree this winter and I am ecstatic for what the future holds for my family. The joy, elation and happiness that we feel would not be possible without our current landlord, family and most importantly Off the Streets. I thank you so much for helping us and I am motivated to assist others in the same way, because of what I experienced in this situation. Thank you again and I hope to hear from you soon.
Catrina, we wish you and your kids the very best in your new home. – From all of us at Off The Streets.
This family brings the total number of people we have helped escape homelessness to 128.
