After living in a Louisville shelter for six months, a mother and son gained stable housing after being enrolled to help her meet her financial goals. She’s now going back to college and is an active member of her community.
Through the program, a mother in recovery was able to gain stable housing to reunite with her three young children. Her kids were able to stay in their same school district, and she was able to secure a full-time job in the field of recovery. She has saved $2,000 after six months in the program, and the family is beginning to heal, together.
Needing emergency financial assistance to remain in stable housing, another single mother entered the program in September 2022. She was pregnant at the time with two young sons. Circumstances caused her to get wrapped up in payday loans, but through the program she has learned to budget effectively and no longer relies on those predatory loans. A hard worker, she has excelled at her job, earning a higher income and gaining health insurance. The family is now stable and can start setting long-term goals to create generational change.
In Bullitt County, a pregnant mother and her three children who were staying with a friend found stable housing through the program, transforming their lives and their futures. After a year in the program, her children are thriving in school, and she is a manager at a successful retail store. She can now work toward becoming debt free and establishing savings.
