Desperation to Gratefulness
Ruth is a single mom to three kids who contracted COVID-19. She had to quarantine for a minimum of two weeks and could not work, therefore, could not pay her rent. With three kids to care for, figuring out how she was going to feed them and keep a roof over their heads became a serious concern for her and she felt desperate. Ruth was able to go to House of Neighborly Service and the food bank, where she received an abundance of groceries. HNS also helped to provide her with resources and walked her through getting set up with Neighbor to Neighbor, so that she could pay her rent. Ruth was so grateful for the help and support of HNS during this unexpected crisis.
