When her daughter's father was deported, April found herself displaced. He had been the bread winner for the family and she didn't know how she was going to support her daughter on her own. Luckily, she found strangers who were kind enough to open their home to her while she got back on her feet, but still, she was under tremendous stress. She was a single mother struggling to keep her baby housed and fed.
One night, all of this stress caught up to her. While she was preparing a meal, she accidentally cut her hand. She went to the hospital to get treated and spoke with a social worker about her overall current living situation and the struggles she was going through to make ends meet. They encouraged her to call JFS Orlando. At JFS, not only did she get support for the long-run, but she was able to get immediate help to get through today's problems.
