Please join us today in congratulating Jessica, Jordan, and her baby daughter for getting into their own rental. After they contacted for help to get into permanent housing, we built a budget with them, then after they found a rental that fit this budget we were happy to pay the security deposit so they could move in. Read Jessica’s story below:
1 year ago , I lost myself while trying to keep a toxic relationship together with my baby’s father after losing a baby because of abuse, it possibly hurting my daughter . I said enough is enough. That’s when I hit up anyone from friends to what family I have left to help me leave. That’s when I found myself couch surfing for a few months with my daughter . I kept getting kicked out of room to rent or friends they didn’t want to deal with having a baby in their home. Than finally , I started paying for motels on a daily I was getting frustrated wasting money on a temporary situation. When I wanted a foundation to build a home for my family and I. That’s when I thought to myself , why is it that my life has flipped upside down when I left for the right reasons. Questions upon questions popped up in my head. That’s when I was referred to OTSHB. I even moved out of the San Fernando Valley to find more reasonable housing cheaper or anything I was desperate. Mentally taking a toll on my well being. If it wasn’t for Jordan stepping up to helpr and OTSHB , I don’t know where I’d be on a nightly basis. Angels are watching over us. It’s hard to establish your life when you don’t know what location or motel you will be at. As a young mother trying to do the best in her ability and man sent from God to help me watch my daughter while I went to work. I’m excited for my new chapter in life a place to call home, and the pleasure of things in my housing being my own. I don’t like having to worry about my daughter damaging things and that being the reason for unstable housing. We would need help with furniture and a security deposit.
This family brings our placement this year to 109 and our grand total since we started OTS in 2014 up to 619. Read more about our charity at OTSHB.COM.
