Today we congratulate Dianna and her family for getting into their own rental after facing the prospect of homelessness. After we built a budget and they found a rental they could afford, we were happy to pay their security deposit so they could move in. We will soon be providing them furniture and household goods to give them a new start in their apartment. Read their story below:
The reason I became homeless is because my complex is now turning away section 8 participants. I have been here for 3 years this was very unexpected and untimely. I’m currently raising my grandson who is a wonderful loving 2 year old. He is the light of my life. Unfortunately I have oxygen, for my chronic obsessive pulmonary disorder. Also I have oxygen that I have to be connected to 24 hours a day. Both of my older daughters have both beat bouts with uterine cancer. One of which recently have discovered nodes in her lungs and one of her valves to her lungs is restricted which may possibly be cancer.The specific assistance is security deposit assistance because I live on a fixed income I’m not able to muster any extra money to put toward moving. I sincerely appreciate off the streets and all of their contributors. I have to use a walker to get around sometimes and One of my daughters is borderline special needs the other one has mental problems are you know financial support for my grandson me and my two daughters on SSI we barely make ends meet each month they help me take care of my grandson. I don’t know where I’ll be if I can’t get the services and help from you guys. I don’t want my family to be in the streets, we can’t go to the shelter we can’t afford to go live in a motel if it’s too much money. I don’t know what I’m gonna do if you guys have blessed me and my family. I really do need you guys assistance I really do hope you guys can help me thank you very much and God bless you guys.
Dianna and her family bring our placements this year to 38 and our grand total since we started OTS four years ago up to 548. Read more about our charity at OTSHB.COM.
