Often times, our clients have multiple jobs and are still struggling to make ends meet. This is the reality for so many living in the affluent Silicon Valley.
Carla is a single mom, works 2 part-time jobs and is a graduate student. She has a vision for a better future for herself and her young son.
The Samaritan House programs really supplement my income in that I save on groceries through the food distributions. The Holiday program and the gifts for my 6 year old allow me to set aside funds for rent. I view Samaritan House as a tool to get ahead until I’m done with school. I’m interviewing for full-time work and I finish grad school this Spring. I’m almost there thanks to Samaritan House.
Carla adds, ”Samaritan House has supported me through this journey and I am so ready to work full-time. I look forward to being to be fully independent.”
It is our privilege to provide hope, dignity and empowerment to people like Carla who are in need of a little help.
