When Mark, Karen and their three children moved back east to take care of a gravely ill relative, they didn’t know that they were saying good-bye to a home to call their own. After Mark’s aunt passed away, the family returned to Orange County, but neither Mark or Karen were able to find employment quickly. With no family left to lean on for support, their small savings was depleted and they were living in motels. Before long, the family found themselves living out of their car.
After being referred to Families Forward, the family was placed in stable housing and are now utilizing our additional services, such as career coaching, counseling and access to our food pantry.
