Giving Locally = Helping Locally!  For every client we help, there is a story. Here are some of those stories.


Jill & Philip have two children. Philip is working, but his hours were cut and they are struggling to make ends meet. They never needed help prior to this year and are trying to navigate the complicated social service system while still looking for work. 


 

Tyron is a single father raising his 6 year old daughter. He is working but doesn't make enough to pay the bills. He shares custody with the child's mother so that the child will always have one parent able to keep a roof over her head.  CFA helps with food support and paid one utility bill.


 

Joan is a single mom with 2 children, 7 & 10.  She lost her job, and her unemployment checks do not cover her expenses.  Joan is hopeful that she will find work, but in the meantime needs help putting food on her table.  CFA helps with food support


 

Richard is a 52 yr old man who has custody of his 14 yr old son.  Richard had been in and out of the hospital due to an illness. CFA paid 2 months worth of utility bills to prevent a shut off.


 

Anne is 94 yr old woman who receives Social Security and has a small pension. She recently fell behind in her rent and was facing eviction. CFA paid her first month's rent so that she could move into senior housing. CFA's case manager also helped her with the application to receive Meals on Wheels.

On Monday mornings, Cheryl's seven year old daughter Cari typically went to school feeling a little hungry since her mom was not always able to provide, on the weekends, the same nutrition that the Federal free and reduced-price school meal program offered.  CFA helped ease this problem by sending a healthy weekend snack pack home with Cari on Friday afternoons.
