“Martha’s has helped me tremendously. They have given me and my son a safe place to stay, food and emotional support.”
Ashley was struggling financially and needed support. She reached out to other shelters online but decided to come to Martha’s Village & Kitchen. She needed to get on her feet so that she could provide a better life for her and her son.
“My favorite thing about Martha’s was pretty much everything. I loved that my son and I had a private room. The food was cooked fresh daily and we were able to get as much as we liked. The management team is amazing and really care about the residents. Even residents here were great. I made friends here and we all felt like a family. “
Ashley was assigned a case manager immediately to help assist with housing. After only 60 days in the program, Ashely was able to save enough to move into a 2 bedroom 2 bath apartment. She graduated the program early and is on the right track for success.
“I applied for my apartment on my own, although Martha’s always has postings of places to rent in the hallway.”
Ashley plans on finishing school, buying a car and continuing to be a good mother and example for her son. “My goal is to be financially stable, save for a car and to live a happy life.”
