She had been applying through several agencies for subsidized housing but in the meantime was faced with homelessness while she waited for something to come available. Thanks to everyone who supports ANEW Living. It is through the support of our community that we can continue our mission to provide short-term transitional housing solutions for those in need.Type your paragraph here.
Morgan, wife and 10 year old daughter fell on hard times several months ago and lost their housing. With no short term/shelter housing options available for families with a dad in Flagstaff they were forced to stay in a local motel paying over $1100 a month in rent. In September they heard about ANEW Living and applied for our transitional housing program. They were accepted into our program and we moved them in in October. With the lower monthly rents they immediately started saving money for future move out expenses and with a more stable living environment Morgan’s wife was able to focus on searching for a better paying job using our “empowerment” center’s computers and internet access. Their efforts paid off and just this past week Morgan’s wife was hire for an office position in Mesa AZ with a start date of July 1st. They have saved enough money to secure an apartment in Mesa so the entire family will be moving out and “up” on July 9th.v
