    Make a Difference: WARM Center

    WHO: A single mother and her two teenaged children

    AGENCY: WARM Center

    THEIR SITUATION: The 40-year-old mother is an assistant store manager and has worked at the same place for more than a decade, but after the breakup of a long-term relationship, she and her children were homeless. They lived in a camper and motels until entering the Harvest Homes Program at the WARM Center. The family recently moved into their own apartment through WARM's Rapid Rehousing Program.
