We met Cristina through a referral from a local domestic violence shelter. After losing her job, Cristina got behind on her bills, including her car, which got repossessed. In the meantime, she was proactively searching for a new job, and she got an amazing employment opportunity.
But she again faced a big obstacle, she desperately needed her vehicle back in order to make it to her new job. In the meantime, Cristina was taking two buses to work every day, working 6 days a week and taking care of her daily errands at the shelter. She knew this schedule was not going to be sustainable, especially knowing that she only had room in the shelter until October.
We started working on a plan to get her car back, and because of your donations we were able to cover the fees. We also wanted to help her get her own housing, which she shortly found after she got her car back! We were able to help her move into her apartment and helped furnish the place.
Cristina's life was so miraculously touched in such a short period of time! Just a couple months ago she was jobless, carless, living in a shelter, wondering how to get out of this situation. She is so grateful for the support she received from our volunteers and donors, who gave her the resources to get back on her feet!
