I lived with my mom for nine years and then her house went into foreclosure. I had two weeks to pack up and find a place for me and my two toddlers, ages one and two. My mother was losing her home and that meant we were losing ours too.

I called looking for shelter but everything was full and I was referred to the Outreach to Homeless Families Case Manager.

Without the help that Friends Association provided my boys and I would be homeless again.
