Sean, a 28-year-old single father, came to the North Raleigh Ministries Crisis Center recently seeking financial and food assistance. His circumstances were heartbreaking. The children’s mother had abandoned them, and Sean was struggling to raise his two children on his own.
He was working part time at a local retail chain and was challenged to find full time employment as a single parent. His mother was helping by taking care of the children when he could work, but they just weren’t able to make ends meet. They knew they would be facing eviction if they didn’t get help.
After assessing Sean’s situation, the Crisis Center determined they could provide him with both rental and food assistance. It was welcomed relief for the entire family. Sean will likely face challenges on the path ahead of him, but we know his family will have shelter and food this month, making those challenges much easier to overcome.
