Sister Mary Alice Murphy Center for Hope:  A young couple and newborn

"A young couple approached the Center for Hope seeking rental assistance and facing the threat of eviction. The couple had no employment, no income, and no federal assistance. Furthermore, the couple was nine months pregnant—just days away from giving birth—and extremely fearful of being homeless with a newborn.

"After working with a case manager from the Center for Hope, the couple was able to find hope and improve their dire situation. In the same day the mother gave birth, the family also received rent assistance and avoided being evicted from their home.

"Shortly thereafter, they received additional support in the form of food stamps and TANF (Temporary Assistance for Needy Families). With the guidance of a Center for Hope case manager, the efforts the husband had made in seeking employment paid off and he successfully secured a job at a local call center.

"Today, the proud parents have a healthy young baby, are living stably in their home and are developing a foundation to no longer have need for TANF. They are very appreciative of the resources and support they received at the Center for Hope and are making significant strides towards becoming self-sufficient."
