Q. Your “Championing” in action.

A. Natalie is a single-mom who became homeless with her two young children after leaving an unsafe living environment with their father. Natalie was able to make ends meet for a while by herself, until her hours were cut back at her job. Supporting two young children and paying market-rate rent while working full time and going to school is not an easy task. Those pressures (mixed with her vehicle breaking down) are what led Natalie into financial distress and to Welcome House. Through our Champions, we were able to offer support services and educational programs to Natalie and her family through our Gardens at Greenup program after they were stably housed. Natalie has been working with Welcome House for almost a year now while holding a steady job and going to school at Gateway. She looks forward to the future for her family and her upcoming graduation in May.
