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