Martha, a mother of a family that was with us stated, “If the Center of Hope had not been here, I don’t know what we would have done.” She said, “I found all of the resources and most importantly I found people that cared about me and my family in the most vulnerable time of our life.” Before she found us she said that she was about ready to “throw in the towel” on life. She didn’t think she would be able to overcome and rise above her situation without the help of the REACH Center of Hope.
Susan, a mother who was homeless, didn’t and her and her kids were split up. Her son had to stay at one place while she and the other children stayed in another location. She could not bring all of her children with her on any given night as she tried to find a place to stay. At the Center of Hope she was able to reconnect herself with her family together again under one roof. She was thankful that she can now see her children off to school every day and be there when they return. She is able to have some quiet reflective time and resources that will help her find more stable housing. She says where she found the Center of Hope helpful is that she didn’t know what to do or where to look, but the Center of Hope had everything, and most of all people who really cared about her and her family.
