THE STORY:

Carmen, Salaam and Destiny are Riding for Homes!

Carmen and her three children had been living in an apartment following a separation from her husband.  The apartment was funded by a housing subsidy voucher program which ended suddenly.  They were facing eviction and moved to the main shelter in early 2012. 

The oldest child subsequently moved out.  Carmen and the other two children came to our Transitional Housing Program in June 2012.  Salaam attends Morristown High School, and Destiny will be finishing her senior year there in the fall. Carmen works as a service receptionist at a car dealership in Morristown.  She is also a June 2013 graduate of CCM with an Associates Degree in Public Administration.  She plans to attend Rutgers in the fall!  She is one very smart, hard-working woman.

Carmen has not had some of the extreme hardships some of our shelter guests experience. However, her story is very much representative of many single mothers who find it financially impossible to survive on a salary of $10.00 an hour supplemented by inadequate child support.

Please donate so that Homeless Solutions can continue helping families like this who need some support to return to independent living.  Thank you.
