Denis and his family were on the verge of eviction. Denis’ wife only speaks Russian and was a stay-at-home mom for their 3 kids while Denis had a great job. Unfortunately, Denis has Multiple Sclerosis and the treatments were not working for him. He was approved for an experimental stem cell program. He was all set and then found out that his disability benefits would not cover all of the family’s rent and regular living expenses.
We were able to help this family stay in their apartment by subsidizing half his monthly rent for a few months until the stem cell program was finished and he was back to work. He and his family were so grateful not only for the rental assistance but for the financial program we provide. Every month he submitted a budget and bank statements showing progress in expense reduction and financial management. He even joked that he had started to learn to cook.
Because of your donations, we were able to help this family stay in their apartment home and recover from a very trying and stressful time for all 5 of them. Because of your donations, Denis went through the experimental program with FAR less stress and was successful in his treatment goals. We are overjoyed to report that more than 9 months later, they have recovered and are doing well.
