Most of the time when we talk about homelessness, big cities come to mind. But about seven percent of homeless people live in rural areas, where access to help is much harder to come by. Flagstaff, Ariz. is one of those places. While city officials work to find solutions, one woman has taken an old motel and turned it into transitional housing. READ MORE

FEBRUARY'S SUCCESS STORY:
Sarah's story by Sarah J. I'd like to take a moment to shout out to Lori, Jessica and everyone who has a hand in the operation of ANEW living. Last August, my husband and I, along with our 4 month old daughter, found ourselves homeless following a blowout with my husband's grandmother who we had been living with. We were forced into a motel, which was 400 dollars a week. We had just found out we were having another baby and had no clue what do or where to go from there. We couldn't afford what we were doing but we didn't have the money to find a place either. We were referred to ANEW living by an agency in town and a few weeks later received a call for an interview. We were able to move in immediately after. 3 weeks after we moved in, my husband was arrested, leaving me pregnant and on one income. I was forced to work 50 to 60 hours a week just to survive, paying for child care, defaulted student loans, fines and rent. Thank God I didn't have to pay 400 dollars a week because I wouldn't have made it. I was excited from the beginning to work the program because for once I felt like my life was going to come back to together. As the months passed, I paid application fee after application fee, only to be turned down because of my past drug related criminal history. It got very discouraging as I was beginning to feel like I would never find permanent housing. On Feb 4th my baby was born by emergency C- section due to preeclampsia. We both spent some time in the hospital fighting for our lives. A couple of weeks ago I ran across an ad on Craigslist for a 2 bedroom trailer. I thought it was a shot in the dark, but I contacted the landlord and got an application anyway. This past week I got a call from the landlord asking me when i would like to move in. The last 7 months has been tough for me and my family but if it wasn't for ANEW living and the amazing work they do for the people in our community, it would not have been possible. Through ANEW I was able to get a second chance at everything I never thought I would have again on my own. Thank you so much for everything you've done for us.y family is forever grateful.
