They got housing!!...
Let us celebrate our 3 long-time guests and their families. In one month, they no longer need our services and have moved on to walking 5 steps to their own washer and dryer in their new home.
A home they have hoped for over a year.
The relief and excitement they share are a true gift to hear about.
I still remember the despair and embarrassment they felt having to use our services. After a couple of weeks, we became "call me in the middle of the night if you need me, friends."
Their children run up, breathless and talking over their sibling, to tell me about their room, getting to move their beds, toys, and favorite items out of storage.
Phew...their day of stability has finally come!
