Alicia was strong enough to live in her car with her son for a year. She sent him off to fourth grade each day, after brushing their teeth with water bottles and bathing with baby wipes. But she couldn’t go on forever this way and worried that her son’s education would be affected. United Way’s Rapid Re-Housing partnership was their solution. With a roof over their heads, beds and showers, Alicia says they got their dignity back.
Now she has a full-time job and says, “I am living with humility and gratitude, and the strength of knowing we will never be homeless again.”
