In 2011, Henry, Yvonne and their kids were living a great life in Florida: a spacious home with a pool, a lawn service, great jobs and an active community. Then, it all fell apart. Henry lost his job due to the recession, and they were on the verge of losing their home as well.
Their savings dwindled, and their situation grew more and more dire. Then, Henry was offered a job in the Chicago area, so the family packed up and moved to DuPage County. Unfortunately, just days before his new position was to start, the new company reneged on their offer.
Their family was left with no form of income and nowhere to go. Luckily, a new friend connected them to Bridge Communities, and they were quickly accepted into the program.
