A young, married mother of two children came into Puertas Abiertas frantic. Her husband lost his job at a restaurant. Losing half the family's income was devastating and Puertas Abiertas connected her with its mental health counselor and PTSD support group. Her husband enrolled in our "Transferable Skills" class, where he learned new marketable skills. We provided this family with food and shelter referrals and offered financial assistance to cover rent. Our services helped this family stabilize and regain the positive energy needed to find new employment.
