Our partner organization The Listening House met with Charlotte just before she started her new job doing maintenance and janitorial work for the Twin Cities stadiums. They referred her to come see us since she was homeless staying at Higher Ground in St. Paul. To start the job, she needed black pants and some other basic work clothing, a sturdy work boot, and a way to get to her job. We outfitted her with black pants and new work shirts, the work boots, and a bus pass.
In a thank you note Charlotte says: “The assistance will help me get on my feet and get myself and apartment. It may not seem like much to you but your donation means the world to me. Thank you!”
