The James family came to us through Coordinated Entry as a homeless family that had hit hard times and been staying at a local shelter. Through our Rapid Rehousing program we were able to get them housed, work with them on some of their challenges, and create a plan for self sufficiency. They are now housed, fully employeed, and kids are doing great in school.
