Meet a Neighbor

Jennifer and EmmaMartina left an abusive marriage to raise her two children as a single mom. She had a job and an apartment, and her children were doing well in school. Then Martina had a severe car accident that left her unable to work and needing extensive physical therapy. She and her children found themselves homeless. The family found shelter at Turning Point. Staff reffered her to our Emergency Food Box Program, where she received desperately needed food assistance. Having a place to stay and enough food allowed Martina to concentrate on her recovery. Martina’s determination to overcome her disabilities and dedication to her children were inspiring.

After receiving services from Neighborhood House for seven months, Martina was strong enough to return to work. Soon thereafter, she moved her family into a new apartment. Upon leaving the program, Martina was still on a tight budget, but found the means to donate a box of food back to the program that helped her family when they needed it most.
