When hard-working single-mom, Alicia, lost her job, the crisis quickly led to homelessness for her family.
“When I lost my job, everything went through the roof. I lost my place and lost my car and got evicted. We had to move into a homeless shelter in Buford GA. I had to withdraw my kids from their school in Norcross and transfer them to Buford. We lost everything . . . The hardest thing for me was not being able to provide for my kids – not knowing our next move and where we were going to end up. It was scary. I don’t have a support system with my family – they are trying to find their own way, and they can’t really help.”
THE FAMILY’S PATH BACK TO PERMANENT HOUSING
As the family begins a happy new chapter, Open Doors continues to check in with Alicia and with the property management team at CF Real Estate Services…
Roderick and his three-year old son were homeless and eating lunch at a nonprofit food kitchen. Open Doors program partners spotted the small family and swung into action. In just three weeks, Roderick and his son had permanent housing within a property operated by CF Real Estate Services. (CF Real Estate Services is an Atlanta multifamily operator and a strong supporter of Open Doors.)
