The weather is getting colder, the days shorter and the nights longer. This time of year is often depicted by cozy nights at home, gathering with family, and enjoying a warm meal. But for those experiencing homelessness in our community - or who are without safe, affordable housing - it can be a time of great uncertainty, loneliness, fear and need.
At Anawim Housing, we believe Home is Everything and that housing is a human right. For over 30 years, we have worked to provide life-changing services that lead to stable housing for individuals, youth and families experiencing homelessness. Over the last year, Anawim Housing has helped house over 450+ individuals - including adults and children - in permanent supportive housing. One of those individuals was Desireay. This is her story:
"Before Desireay learned about Anawim Housing this summer, she had lost her job as a result of the pandemic. Unable to pay rent, she was evicted by her previous landlord. Desireay and her two daughters lived out of her car and moved in and out of a shelter before receiving support from Anawim Housing. When handed the keys to their new home, tears and smiles came from Desireay and her daughters. With a safe place to call home, the girls are back in school and Desireay is focused on next steps including employment - she's now able to include an address on her application."
Anawim Housing is committed to helping provide safe stable housing to our community's most vulnerable - but we need your help.
