Leah, a single mom with two young children in Orleans, came to HPC seeking assistance with heating costs. “That was the first step,” she said, “and it changed my life.”
Leah’s job as a preschool teacher leaves her living paycheck to paycheck. There is no room for emergencies. “It’s traumatizing to live in uncertainty and fear,” she said, “but that’s what housing instability does. People stay in bad situations, let their dreams go, and settle for survival.”
When her Case Manager learned that Leah’s family was living in a studio apartment, they worked together to complete housing applications, apply for funding opportunities, and enroll in HPC’s special programs to help with school supplies and holiday gifts.
Today, thanks to HPC’s help, Leah is preparing to sign a lease on a three-bedroom home that will provide stable year-round housing for her family.
