A mother and her 13-year-old son had relocated from New Jersey to our area for a better job and life. But, as is true with many of our residents, her spotty rental history and poor credit meant that she could not access a suitable apartment.

For months, she slept on the couch while her son managed on an air mattress at a friend’s house.

Finally, after having been referred to GSH, we were able to work with her to secure a housing unit with us and other support services. More than that, GSH was able to find a bed for her son. Below is a photo of the bed when it was loaded into the truck for the move today.

It looks like a good start to a brighter future. Many thanks to Jessica, their GSH case manager, who saw their need and advocated for them. Jessica really made the difference in improving their lives.
