Tyrone (23) and his mom Elizabeth (56) found themselves homeless after taking care of a family member with severe cancer. Their entire savings and efforts went toward restoration that unfortunately never happened. They had to start their lives again from scratch, and they found our outreach after our volunteer Corinne had met Tyrone on the street and helped him get a meal.
Both Elizabeth and Tyrone got jobs, but they had to spend almost everything they earned on hotels, transportation and living expenses.
Getting housing looked like a distant dream, they were tired but never lost hope. It was always refreshing to talk to them because they remained positive and were open to any possibilities.
Partnered with Tri-Valley Seek&Save, we worked together to look for any housing opportunities. A great local apartment rental unit was provided in partnership with a government agency, and we were able to move them in, furnish their place, pray over their new home and celebrate their new beginning! Tyrone had a message for our volunteers donors and supporters.
“Do not withhold good from those who deserve it, when it is in your power to act. Do not say to your neighbor, 'Come back later; I'll give it tomorrow'—when you now have it with you.”
