Young family avoids homelessness because organizations in our area work together …

One of our FCCH clients called us for help with Eviction Prevention.  She became one of the first clients to be helped with our new partnership with the Regional Resource Connection (RRC).  RRC is responsible for local 211 calls and coordinating community services for those in need.  This FCCH/RRC partnership begins Eviction Prevention (EP) evaluation with the RRC located at DHHR and funded by United Way through Telamon.  In an effort to avoid duplication, FCCH clients needing help with eviction prevention are referred to RRC.  RRC evaluates clients and FCCH helps to provide funding for this service THANKS to United Way, Eastern WV Community Foundation, Ecolabs, our donors and sponsors.  

Our RRC/FCCH client is a single mother taking care of 5 young children, one is disabled. She had some health issues which caused her to be out of work for 3 months.  Her landlord says that she usually pays her rent early.  This client is back to work and will be able to pay rent next month.  RRC pulled together funds from 6 organizations including FCCH to help this family get back on its feet and avoid the trauma of homelessness. That’s what working together can do to help families in our area! 

Thank you RRC, United Way, Eastern WV Community Foundation, Ecolabs, Telamon and many generous donors.
