Update on Current Families and on Some of Our Previous Guests
Current Families
We have 3  families in our program.  All single moms with daughters.  

Collisa works full time and will soon begin her housing search in earnest.  Her three year old daughter has made some new friends at preschool; always a relief for parents.

Ramona is looking for full time employment.  She has several job interviews lined up for next week.  Her 2 year-old has settled into the daycare routine, and her 6 year-old reports, "Spring break camp, at the daycare, is 'pretty funner' than I thought it would be".  Well, that's good to know! 

Bianca  moved into IHNA on March 31st.  She has 2 daughters - Miracle who is 1 year-old and Zahira who is 6 years-old. Bianca  works full-time at a fast-food restaurant, and she will be searching for housing while in our program.

Teresa and Angel have found a nice apartment and moved in on March 31. Yay!

Thank you, everyone, for helping to support our great  families.

Families in our Extended Network Program
Once families find permanent housing they have to option to participate in our Extended Network Program. We touch base with each of the families quarterly to see how they are doing and if they need any assistance. From our most recent contact with the families, we heard the following:

Crystal, has been living independently for 6 months since exiting IHNA. She reported that she and her daughter have remained at the same address since their departure. Crystal reported that she is also working on starting classes at Athens Tech and that her daughter is growing fast and doing great!

Missy has been living independently for 9 months since leaving IHNA. She reported that  she and her children are at the same address since their departure from our shelter. She has since obtained a new job and reports that her children are doing very well. 

Justin and Sherica, have moved to Florida and secured employment. They also reported they have obtained childcare assistance and their children are doing "Awesome"!

Stephen, who has been living independently for 3 months since his departure from IHNA, reports that he is still working for telemarketing company in Athens and has received several promotions. Stephen also reported that he and his three children have stable housing and are doing well!

You support makes a difference today but it also continues to pay dividends in the future as well. Thank YOU!
