Things Looked Very Bleak

There's no doubt in my mind that I will never be in the financial bind that I was in and it's all thanks to the Resident Relief Foundation.

Dear Board,

This past summer was possibly the hardest financial situation I have ever been in.   I was applying for jobs and being rejected.  I had more bills than money and things looked very bleak.

I will be able to get back on my feet

Around July I was on NC211 and was doing a search for rent assistance. I found the Resident Relief Foundation and although I had never heard of it, I decided to give it a try and I am so grateful I did. I not only learned a lot thanks to the Evolve program, but you approved my grant application and paid my rent and that’s what I’m most thankful for. When you fall behind, getting back on your feet is the hardest part and it takes time.

Thanks to everyone on the board I will be able to get back on my feet and get caught up on my bills and also start implementing some of the things I learned about on the Evolve program. When I put my budget and the Evolve together, there’s no doubt in my mind that I will never be in the financial bind that I was in this past summer and it’s all thanks to the Resident Relief Foundation.

Thanks so much for everything and God Bless you all!
