Olivia, mother of 2-year-old, Jessie, successfully completed our transitional housing program. She was able to secure employment and permanent housing right before the COVID-19 shutdowns began.
Unfortunately, Olivia's job was considered "non-essential" and she was unable to work after the shutdowns. Because of Olivia’s documentation status, she was not eligible for unemployment. With nowhere to turn and at risk of losing her home, Olivia thought of her case manager she worked with at Human Options. Her case manager was there to help! Human Options provided rental assistance while Olivia could not work, making it possible for Olivia to maintain a safe home for Jessie and herself.
Olivia has recently been able to return to work and support her family.
