Make a Difference: Norwich Human Services

Who: Rishina, a single mother to a 2-year-old son.

Agency: Norwich Human Services.

The situation: Rishina and her son were displaced by a fire last July that destroyed their housing, furniture and personal possessions. Since then, NHS has been collaborating with its regional agency partners to match Rishina with as much assistance as possible. She works two jobs in the medical field and worked tirelessly to find a new apartment, an exorbitant challenge in today's housing and rental market.

What to give: Rishina still needs household items to make her new residence a home for her and her son. She would appreciate any assistance, but gift cards to Walmart would be especially appreciated.

To donate: Contact Norwich Human Services at (860) 823-3778, ext. 3475, or send gift cards and checks written out to “NHS/Make a Difference” to Norwich Human Services, City Hall, 100 Broadway, Norwich, CT 06360.
