    Hi my name isPauline. And I had lost my job (full time)in October 2018. I found a part time job..which I’m still at. But I was only able to keep up with the bills on my apartment. My landlord didn’t want to help me/work with me. So now I’m trying to find a place to live. I still have my phone bill and car payment. I will be putting my stuff in storage. If you can help me out in any way that would be great. Thank you

    I am unemployed and living in wonder lake with my 2 children. I believe my boyfriend is about to kick us out. I have an 11 year old and a 1 year old. I just want to know more about this place, do you send the kids to school? Would there be some kind of daycare while I looked for work? Could we sleep there, or is it daytime only?

    I am seeking information about your organization. I am a Therapist and looking into local resources. Any information would be appreciated. I would also be interested in setting up a tour or some kind of informational meeting. Thank you!

    I have about 5 boxes of girl clothes sizes from 5T to 7/8. I have a couple winter jackets and snow boots too. Are you taking donations at this time?
