Make a Difference: Reliance House
Who: Theresa, 45, lives in Norwich with her 16-year-old daughter and 17-year-old son. She and her children were recently reunited and are in the process of moving from temporary housing to a more stable, permanent home. Theresa is proud of her children, who are enrolled in local schools and are even earning college credits while still in high school. Due to the change in housing, Theresa and her family are in need of home goods such as sheets, towels, kitchen supplies, cleaning products and non-perishable goods. Her children would benefit from school supplies and gift cards from department stores like Staples, Target and Old Navy. Theresa loves crafts and would enjoy receiving any sort of crafting supplies.
