Make a Difference: Always Home

WHO: Jim, Stephanie and their 18-month-old son

AGENCY: Always Home Inc.

THEIR SITUATION: This family's life changed overnight when 25-year-old Jim's health deteriorated into life-threatening congestive heart failure. After a month in the hospital, Jim learned he will never be able to return to work because his heart is working at only 26 percent. Stephanie is trying to hold their family together, working every possible shift. To add to their worries, the car that they recently purchased died one day after the warranty expired.

WHAT TO GIVE: A monetary donation to Always Home will help replace the car's transmission so that Stephanie can get to work and earn the income she needs to pay the rent each month. Having transportation will also make it easier for Jim to get to the many doctors' appointments that his condition requires.

TO DONATE: To make an online donation, visit AlwaysHome.org. Checks can be made payable to Always Home and mailed to 119 High St., Mystic, CT 06355. For more information, call (860) 245-0222. All donations are tax deductible.
