Nichole, a single mother with a 5-year-old daughter, reached out to Community Resource Center for help to escape her abuser and relocate safely. After her address was unfortunately leaked in court documents, Nichole faced immediate danger. She and her daughter were also faced with the prospect of starting over, yet again.
The breach of Nichole’s address through court documents left her vulnerable, but Nichole was determined to protect herself and her family. Relocating is expensive and oftentimes survivors of domestic violence will not leave because it is not an obtainable expense. Nichole had been found by her abuser and needed to leave urgently for her and her daughter’s safety.
Nichole and her CRC case manager developed a safety plan and collaborated with the housing management where she lived …
Christen lost her employment and housing due to Covid layoffs. Unable to find employment, she ran out of savings and was forced to give up her apartment. After a short time with family, Christen became homeless.
Coping with serious health concerns, she was connected to CRC and received emergency motel vouchers. After paying to continue at the motel, she was approved for an apartment and moved to a bridge motel program. With the support of her CRC case manager and deposit and first month’s rent assistance, Christen was able to move into a new apartment with her dog and cat.
Ted once owned a two-story home with his family and had a full-time job as a sales manager. His life changed in 2017 when he lost his job, had trouble getting back on his feet, lost his home and entered into a rehab program. Ted moved into his van, sleeping on the metal floor while participating in a 12-step program.
Ted first came to Community Resource Center in 2020 because he needed food. With CRC’s help, he was able to receive help for deposit and rental assistance. Ted was in a home again.
Ted continues to do well, with a good job, a safe place to call home, and a re-established connection with his family.
