from Dylan w., DRC Case Manager
What would you do if you had nowhere to go, but you had a baby on the way?
We first met Samantha when she arrived at the City of Fort Worth overflow shelter, tired, scared, alone, and pregnant. Samantha didn't have a home to go to, and she faced the uncertain future of bringing her baby into the world straight to the streets.
DRC staff worked with Samantha to get her into a women's shelter, but we knew that was just a temporary solution. What Samantha and her child needed, and deserved, was a real home.
Because of your support, I was able to place Samantha into an apartment of her own at the end of February, before the baby arrived.
And last week, Samantha welcomed a happy and healthy baby boy.
Thank you for supporting the DRC and giving this new family a safe, healthy start. You make all the difference!
