When we first met Julia, she was struggling to stay housed and grieving the death of her teenage son. Though she was in the lowest place she had ever been, she never lost hope that there would be brighter days ahead.
Since then, and thanks to your generous donations, she has completed financial counseling with a Crisis Assistance Ministry caseworker and gone on to become an amazing customer advocate. The counseling gave her the tools to set financial and personal goals and as an advocate she uses her voice to lift up those who find themselves in a similar situation.
“What is happening for me can happen for anyone with the right support system, momentum, and drive.”~Julia
Julia may still be a mother with a broken heart, but even on her worst day she knows that the community is behind her and that means the world to her.
Your support makes a critical difference for Julia and other hardworking Charlotteans facing unprecedented financial crisis. With your help, neighbors can avoid homelessness, rebuild their lives, and pursue greater financial security.
