Today we congratulate ‘Charlotte’ (privacy protected) and her 2 kids for getting out of their homeless situation and into their own apartment. After building a budget with her and coordinating with the shelter she has been staying at, we were happy to pay their deposit so they could move in. This family will now be able to spend Christmas in their own home. Read ‘Charlotte’s’ story below:
To whom it may concern,
My name is ‘Charlotte’. I currently reside at a shelter with my two young children. My son is 10 years old and my daughter is 5 years old. I entered this program on May 12, 2017 as a survivor of domestic violence. I had experienced emotional, mental and physical abuse by my ex-husband for two years. I have the opportunity to have stable and permanent housing for myself and my two children. Due to my low income, it has become a barrier for me to provide a deposit for my housing opportunity. With I am capable of maintaining the rent each month but cannot afford the huge amount of deposit out of pocket. I am requesting financial assistance for the amount of the deposit. I am scheduled to move into the unit in early December. Please advise if you can assist me and my family with the deposit. If any further information or documents are needed feel free to contact me with these request. Thank you for your time, support and help with this matter. – ‘Charlotte’
