We’d like to share an update on Amber, whose story was covered by WRAL in July. You may remember that Amber worked full-time and lived with her four kids and a therapy dog in a local motel. After five months in the motel and dedicated housing search as well as advocacy from the Families Together team for the last several months, Amber finally signed a lease to a place where she and her family can make a home. Our Mentor Advocates will continue to work with her for up to a year to help ensure her long-term housing success.
In the Raleigh/Wake rental market, the challenge of finding affordable housing for hourly wage workers - even with a voucher - is enormous. Families Together is dedicated to ensuring that children in our community never have to wonder where they're going to sleep at night.
Your individual donations and church support makes this kind of life-changing event possible and helped make Amber’s dream of having a home a reality.
