Cammie’s Story: Homeless, Unemployed, Parenting and Pregnant
Let’s be honest. Being pregnant it not always the happiest time of your life. It can be scary, especially when the pregnancy is unplanned or you are experiencing a crisis like not having a home, a job, or support from family or friends. You know you need help, but where can you turn for that help? Read Cammie’s story below to find out how LFCS helped when she found herself homeless, unemployed, parenting two young children, and expecting her third.
“I remember the first time I heard about LFCS. I was literally homeless. It was me and my 5 year old son at the time and my daughter whom at the time was still in a carseat. I didn’t have a place to live. I was living from hotel to hotel. I came into LFCS and met my social worker. She was so sweet, kind, caring and understanding of my situation.
She began helping us by reaching out to shelters and finally got us a room at the Salvation Army. Then it didn’t stop there. She provided us with bus passes, transportation, and hope that we would soon find a place of our own. She not only helped me get a 3 bedroom apartment but she provided clothes, diapers, bus passes, and eventually things I needed for our apartment.
Without my worker and the help of LFCS, I don’t think I would be where I am today. Thank God for such a wonderful person and a great establishment. I love this place and I hope that more families can be helped and experience the joy and help I have experienced.
