Harrison and Ashley came to Community of Hope in 2020 after becoming homeless. Ashley, pregnant with Chloe, and Harrison, having experienced economic hardship related to his prior divorce, were heavily impacted and this affected his self employed cleaning business. They needed a place they could afford while rebuilding and getting back on their feet.
Chloe was born while the family was in a clean, safe, and happy home in the Community of Hope transitional housing program. This home gave her parents a launching pad and their cleaning business grew. Her mother also got a part-time job that allowed her to help support the family, grow the cleaning business, and give Chloe lots of love and attention. This stable loving home environment also provided a place to reunite with her older sister Brooke who came to live with them. Her other siblings were also able to resume normal visitation schedule with her and her father.
This past month, after only a year and a half in the Community of Hope Transitional Housing Program, Chloe’s parents were able to move the family into a home they purchased. We all experience times of brokenness. Thanks to Community of Hope, Chloe’s family’s time of brokenness was relatively short and she never had to experience the trauma that homelessness inflicts on children.
