A letter from one of our participants:
“My name is Lisa,
I am the happiest I have been in many years thanks to HECH. A few years ago I was the average person working 2 jobs to make ends meet , not realizing I was living pay check to pay check and 1 curve ball could put me in jeopardy of losing my home.
One day that curve ball came and just like that I was homeless. I have lived in my car with 2 dogs, lived in a landscaping garage and would shower at a gym. I was cleaning houses by day and offices at night to save up money for first, last, and security deposit. To no avail something would always come up, car problems , vet bills etc. A couple years ago I found a landlord who let me rent a place with no deposits needed, however I soon found out why. My living conditions were very dangerous, and police were called to the property on a weekly basis. I lived there a long time feeling there was no way out until someone told me about HECH.
I decided to give them a call and from that day forward I could not believe the dedication and compassion of the people who run HECH, how they go above and beyond for the people they work with. I had been working diligently with Nicole for a long time, she told me not to give up, even though I would leave her office in tears I didn’t lose hope or faith that she was always trying to help me. One day last October I finally got the phone call from Nicole that she had found me a home, that I like to call my forever home. There are no words to describe how safe and happy I feel. I still find myself walking around my home and cannot believe this is real and not a dream. If I could give any advice to people waiting for a home it would be to never give up!! HECH will not forget about you and your family, keep in mind they are always working hard to find you a safe and secure home we all pray for.
