Success Story

Case Closed: Success Story

Maria Perez, NEWS Transitional Housing Assistant/Case Manager, closed another case of a woman who came to NEWS and is now successfully supporting herself and living independently.

Patricia* came to NEWS in November of 2010 with a monthly income of $1,169 in cash aid and food stamps. She was a victim of domestic violence and had two teenage children. She was immediately taken to the safety of our emergency shelter and lived there for 4 months with her children where they were given access to all of NEWS’ counseling services: Homeless Prevention Rapid Rehousing, help with employment resources, and help with searching for an apartment.

With Maria’s help, Patricia was able to get a full-time job and move into a new apartment. She now has an additional part-time job and has tripled her income, is supporting her children, and as of January 2012 she is paying her full rent by herself! With the help of your contributions to NEWS, Patricia has a very bright future, free of violence, and she is setting great example for her children.
