See what some of the families are saying about how GSH was able to help them…

  • Words can’t express the appreciation I have for the rental assistance I received from you all after my car accident left me unable to work. I was able to focus on recovering without fear of losing my home. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

    J.S.
  • “After losing my husband to a heart attack, I was left with 3 children to care for, and no job. GSH helped me apply for a housing voucher and become more self-sufficient. I was able to find a job and become more financially stable. I honestly do not know what I would have done without the help, understanding and strength I received from GSH.”

    H.Y.
  • “Thank you for your assistance programs! You all saved the day and we appreciate all that you do to help families in situations like ours.”

    N.A
  • “With the help of GSH, I have been able to improve my life with self-sufficiency, which has placed me in a better position to purchase my first home! GSH is a great program for someone who is in need of a new beginning in their lives and is working towards making some positive changes.”

    S.S.
  • “We are very grateful for your program. Life has turned for the better for us. After nine months, my husband is now employed again.”
