Ms. J. is a senior who was previously homeless after being attacked by a dog and losing her job. Her son works for the TSA. He was able to help secure an apartment for her 7 months ago and helps subsidize her rent. All was fine until the government shutdown. Because of his own obligations, he was unable to help his mother these past few months. She scraped together everything she could, made a few extra dollars by house sitting or doing elder care for cash until March when she just couldn’t make ends meet. She is on food stamps and has very little overhead.

She is a strong woman and is determined to do whatever necessary so she doesn’t end up homeless ever again. Interestingly, by going through our application process, she discovered on her Credit Karma report that the government has been mistakenly deducting over $140 each month to pay back student loans. She knew that she had paid them in full but all her records were destroyed in a fire some years ago and she was unable to prove it. Now she is able to show them and hopefully get some money back at some point. Thank you to Wasatch Property Management for referring her to us!

She wrote us a note:

Greetings Resident Relief Team – many acts of kindness go unrecognized. I would like to thank you all for your generous financial gift in support of my short-term need with my housing crisis.
