Today we congratulate Monique and her daughter for ending their homeless situation. When Monique called us we built a budget with her and after she found a rental we were happy to pay the security deposit so they could move in. We will soon be providing this mother and daughter essential household goods and furniture so they can make their new rental into a real home. Read Monique’s story below:
Dear OTS, hello my name is monique im a single mother work one job. my manager gave me a 60 day notice i had to find a new place to stay within the 60 days. i been looking due to other things its been diffcult. its been kind of rough due to my credit. i went on apartment search few days later. i was bless with good news that i got my unit at that time i could not afford my current rent plus my new unit move in cost deposit. i reached out to off the street to get some help. at this time im homeless due to me not having the money to move in. i would like to thank off the street for there support and assistance. i wasn’t aware that i would find a new place. i did not know that i was going to be getting a place because the time frame was a short notice. i did not how was i going to get the help that i need. i have no money for motel. i reached out to get some help. at this point im still in a current situation. i have apartment unable to move in. that would give me a few months to find a apartment or i can lose my assistance so i reached out to off the street for the assistance. – monique
