United Way Helps Families Stay Together
A young single mother, Briyannah lived with a friend after Tiyler was born because there were no rooms available in area family shelters. The friend told her about the crisis nursery at Providence House which receives funding from United Way, a place where Tiyler would be safe and cared for while Briyannah focused on getting her life back on track.
And Briyannah needed a lot of help – support with gaining employment and housing, as well as day care and securing basic needs items for her son. She attended more case management appointments and parenting classes than were required because she was so motivated to be self-sufficient. In less time than most, Briyannah and Tiyler moved into an apartment in a safe community, near public transportation and within walking distance of stores.
Providing immediate emergency shelter and support for homeless children is a critical step toward preserving families.
