Kathy and her son were living with a roommate. However, after Kathy lost her job due to COVID-19 layoffs, they could not afford to stay there. Kathy used her savings to get by as long as she could. Within a short time she was out of options and and did not want to be on the streets with her child, so they came to to the Brian Garcia Welcome Center seeking assistance. HSC staff confirmed that Kathy's mother in Kansas was more than willing to take them in. Kathy was optimistic with the support she would have as well as employment opportunities available, and was incredibly grateful to avoid homelessness. HSC Staff purchased bus tickets for both Kathy and her son, and they were reunited with Kathy's mother back in Kansas.
