Erin is a brave, wonderful young mother of 3 children under age 7. When Erin came to Family Promise she had no direction, no hope. While in the program she volunteered at St. Vincent De Paul where she was offered a job, got her driver’s license and connected with other various resources in the community that helped her with her daily life skills. In a few short months Erin moved out of homelessness and into a beautiful apartment with her family. Today she continues to raise her children in the same apartment, still employed and has a positive attitude about the future of her family. Erin has risen out of the depths of homelessness; bound and determined to never fall back onto its slippery slope. Her story is one by which all of us can be inspired knowing that sometimes when everything comes together the course of lives do change.
