During the month of June 2018 START was able to help a new single mother of 2 with rental assistance in order to prevent her from becoming past due on her bills related to her housing. After her children’s father unexpectedly passed away she was left to manage the household bills on her own. In order to maintain her housing she decided to get a second job in hopes to keep up with her monthly bills. START was able to help supplement these costs until she received her first paycheck from her new employer. She and her children are adjusting to their new lifestyle and managing day by day throughout their grieving process. They are hopeful to be back on their feet financially within a few short weeks.
