Ali and her children arrived at The Road Home after spending several months living in a domestic violence shelter. Ali worked with her case manager and was quickly approved for our Rapid Re-Housing Program. Ali and her children were able to quickly find an apartment and move out of the shelter.
After moving into an apartment, Ali was still having trouble finding employment. Fortunately, Ali was able to find a job through the help of Department of Workforce Services (DWS). She was excited about her new job but worried because she would not receive a paycheck from her new job before her rent was due. Ali feared that a return to shelter was inevitable. Luckily, The Road Home’s Housing Program was able to provide Ali and her family with a month of rental assistance.
By the next month, Ali had received her paycheck from work and was able to start paying rent on her own. Assistance from The Road Home ultimately made all the difference.
