From Homelessness To Housed!

Our home is the center of our family life. It is our refuge from the stresses of life. It is where our children play and retreat.

As the Ochoa Family Winter Shelter season comes to a close we are happy to show the impact of this program on the lives of those who participated in it. So many of these families have successfully found a home and the security that comes with it. Getting a break from the stress of being homeless and the ability to save the needed funds for housing is essential.

The McLaurin family proudly show off the keys to their new home! After living in their car for 8 months they eagerly participated in the Ochoa Shelter program getting them back on their feet and giving them the needed tools to succeed.

    “You are wonderful. My son is in town to visit me and you made it possible for me to cook him a meal. It made me feel good to be able to do that for him. It made him feel like old times.” ~ Brenda (homeless)
