Opening Windows of Opportunity

Sheila has a daughter with medical and mental health needs and a parent who requires in-home care. Maintaining steady employment was a challenge, and Sheila was evicted from her home for her inability to pay rent. Enrolling in the YW’s Bridge Housing program gave Sheila the opportunity to stabilize her daughter’s medical condition, begin classes toward a nursing degree, and clear up past debts. Sheila recently assumed full lease responsibility for the unit she called home as a YW program participant. Her daughter is high school junior and looking at colleges to attend once she graduates.

Part-time work left her uninsured and struggling to pay for basic necessities.  Mary tried applying for public assistance on her own, but was unsuccessful.  Mary came to the YWCA, where we quickly helped her confirm Medicaid and supplemental food benefits that gave her financial stability.
