Isaiah and his spouse both lost their jobs due to COVID-19 and became homeless. They received support from their faith community. It’s difficult to find affordable housing, especially for a large family. But a partially subsidized home was identified by the county. Unfortunately, due to their unemployment, certain financial obligations needed to be resolved before they could qualify.
This was a unique request to MESH. But based upon a recommendation from ASSIST and another organization, as well as a meeting with the family which left a “good feeling” about the character and work ethic of both Dad and Mom, MESH made a decision to help the family retire certain debts.
The family moved into their new home. Within a few days, Isaiah had secured a new job with a stable company and his wife was out looking.
