“Before I moved into Marisol Homes, I was living in a drafty camper with my 2-year-old son. We had an extension cord running into an auto shop. I was parked behind it for electricity and there was no running water. It was very cold, but it kept the snow and rain out. To top it off, I was pregnant with twins. From nine weeks pregnant, I knew one of the twins would not survive due to a birth defect. It was a very difficult and high-risk pregnancy.
I felt completely hopeless. I had no job, a 2 year old to take care of and twins on the way. My children’s father was incarcerated, so I was on my own to take on all of this. I was scared. ...
One day my mother found Marisol Homes and contacted them to explain my situation with hopes they would help shelter us. They were more than willing to interview me the following day over the phone. It took about a week to hear back, but they accepted me and my son. My oldest daughter later moved in with us.
Marisol Homes was a godsend!
If it wasn’t for them, I would have put my surviving daughter up for adoption and would have never got the footing I needed to get where I am today. They offered much needed counseling as well as many resources to help me get my life stable.
We now live in a beautiful three-bedroom apartment and have no real concerns any longer. They helped clear a path for me by assisting with building my credit up, too. I can’t thank the staff and caseworkers enough for the life they have made possible for us! God bless you all!”
