Today we congratulate Norma & her daughter Danyielle for ending their homeless situation. We were happy build a budget with them and then pay their security deposit after they found a rental they could afford. Due to a foreclosure they have been homeless in various parts of Orange County since 2011 jumping between motels, armories, couch hopping, and women’s shelters, and most recently in their car. Danyielle recently got a job and that income combined with Norma’s SSI income allows them to afford their new rental – they just needed help with the deposit. We will soon be providing them essential furniture to turn their rental into a real home.
This year we have placed 51 people and since our startup in 2014 we have placed a total of 361 people.
