Make A Difference: Always Home
WHO: Faith and her 8-year-old son
AGENCY: Always Home Inc., whose mission since 1988 is to prevent family homelessness.
THEIR SITUATION: This past year upended 40-year-old Faith’s life. After a routine mammogram, she was told she had Stage 1, Grade 3 invasive breast cancer and underwent a double mastectomy. Due to complications, she developed an infection and had to have a second surgery. Currently in chemotherapy treatment, Faith is unable to work, and unpaid bills are mounting. She worries most about paying the rent in the months ahead. She knows how important a stable home is for her young son to feel safe and secure during this uncertain time. As a single mom, Faith’s world centers around her son. She wakes up every day determined to overcome cancer and to be with him as he grows up.
WHAT TO GIVE: A monetary donation to Always Home will provide housing stability and peace of mind for Faith and other low-income, single mothers who are encountering life-challenging situations.
