A Family of 3 Just One Day From a Shelter

The pandemic has caused much disruption in so many lives.  Here at RRF, we see this every single day since March 16th. By way of comparison, we received 57 applications in the first quarter of 2019.  The first quarter of 2020?  1,100 applications!  Renters desperately want to pay their rent and landlords desperately want to pay their mortgages.  Government has done little to help regular Americans struggling to keep themselves housed as they continue to submit unemployment claims, fight unfair denials, and visit food banks every week.  Here is a note from one of those families that, BECAUSE OF YOUR SUPPORT, did not end up in a shelter: 

I just want to thank you and your board for the grant to get my rent caught up. I had been searching for months online for help because the local non-profit organizations in my county had run out of funding shortly after the stay at home orders in March took effect. I applied to every job with no luck. When I got the eviction papers I didn’t know what I was going to do.

I found ya’ll online somehow and decided to apply even though in the back of my mind I thought there was no way I would get approved just because of the location, and the amount of past-due rent that was owed. When you guys called me and told me I had been approved I just cried, My 2 daughters and I were 1 day from being put out and we would have more than likely had to go to a shelter, so thank you, thank you, thank you, from the bottom of my heart for everything. I have no past due amount for my rent and going forward should have no problems at all with making my payments. Ya’ll gave me the fresh start that I needed. 

I will continue to use the personal finance program going forward, there was a lot of information I had no clue about so that will definitely come to good use. 

With Gratitude,

Jennifer, Caddo Mills, TX
