We are here because Kim and her children needed us.

It’s moving day for Kim and her daughter.

According to Kim, she hit rock bottom. She left a relationship which forced her and the kids to couch-surf for a while. When she was asked to leave the last home, her kids looked at her as if they were saying, “Help me, Mom. I can’t keep doing this.”

“I can deal with being homeless but it wasn’t fair to my kids,” explained Kim, the pain in her voice clearly evident.  

Kim is a fighter and took control of her life. She will soon finish a trades program, was accepted to a pre-apprenticeship program, and found an apartment for her family. Kim shares credit for her turn around with St. Paul’s Center staff who provided support, encouragement and resources to help with her transition out of homelessness. Kim’s family joined our Bridges Program and will receive 12 months of additional case management support.

St. Paul’s Center is here for families like Kim’s. Will you be there for us?
