Meet Sarah – Charlotte Family Housing Testimonial
Sarah and her son relocated from New York to Charlotte in search of lower living costs but encountered difficulties securing affordable housing close to her job. They moved between places, relying on family help until it became unsustainable.
Sarah was forced to leave her warehouse job due to overnight shifts conflicting with caring for her child. Despite finding new employment, affordable housing remained elusive. After settling into Charlotte Family Housing’s transitional housing, Sarah collaborated with social workers to pursue her goals: stable housing, convenient childcare, financial security, dependable transportation, and education.
She now highly recommends CFH, praising the impactful assistance of the social workers who aided her financial growth and financial literacy skills. Now, Sarah maintains two jobs, got certified as a nursing assistant, and is flourishing in permanent housing. She was able to save several thousand dollars and renew the lease at her apartment all on her own.
Sarah is thankful for CFH’s support. “I am very grateful. I don’t know where I would be without them. I now pay attention more, instead of just spending aimlessly, and I’m saving money now.”
