A recent guest, and expectant parent, had additional pressure to resolve her homelessness as quickly as possible. "If the baby comes before the apartment does, Child Protective Services will be called... That scares me. I just can't let that happen."
You can hear the tension in Siobhan’s voice when she says this. She lost a job and health benefits in Tennessee. She came to Michigan to be near family, “I’m working hard to get it all done, very quickly. HOPE has really helped me a lot. I know I couldn't have done this on my own.”
After only 17 days as guests at HOPE, Siobhan and her fiancé moved into their apartment in plenty of time to set-up the baby’s room. So, now they can relax and enjoy being expectant parents.
Can you imagine the stress this mom felt?
