After experiencing a job loss and family medical emergency, Natasha fell behind on rent. The landlord evicted her and her four children and all of her furniture was put into storage. The single mother moved to an emergency shelter with her family and then into Abode Service’s transitional housing until she was able to get back on her feet.
Thankfully, she found a job working as a data collection specialist for a tech company in San Francisco and Abode helped her find a 2-bedroom apartment. During the year that it took to get back on her feet, Natasha fell behind in payments for her storage facility and lost all of her furniture.
Volunteers from our GIVE Girls group joined together to give the family a comfortable and safe home of their own.
Natasha was overwhelmed when she saw her apartment. She couldn’t believe how much our volunteers had done to make a new home for her family.
Seeing the joy the kid’s felt at having their own bed was the most rewarding of all.
I don’t even know what to say, I was hoping maybe we could get a couple of things, little by little. I am just so thankful to close this chapter of our lives and start over. Thank you so very much, I feel incredibly blessed.
