“I would like to start by thanking you with all the gratitude in the world for the housing subsidy I have been receiving from your organization. I cannot even put into words how much this has changed the life of myself and my son. Starting over in a new place with a 5 year old special needs child on my own was not the easiest task but was well worth it and you contributed so much by allowing us to afford a home in a safe place! We have been able to get by and create a safe and happy home.”
