Love INC Impact Stories

Best Night's Sleep

Posted by Kelly Voss on

"Jende", along with his wife and two young children, immigrated to the Cedar Valley from central Africa. They had been in the area for one month when they were referred to Love INC by another local agency.

With the help of a translator from Jende's church, one of our intake volunteers was able to learn more about Jende's story and help welcome this new family to the area. He was excited to find employment in Waterloo, but his family was still struggling to get the things they needed to settle in their home. They had very little furniture and the whole family was sleeping on the floor because they could not afford beds.

Love INC was able to deploy a team of eager volunteers to deliver three mattresses and bedding sets to Jende's family's apartment. We even had some fun race car and polka dot sheets for the kids! When we followed up the next day to make sure the delivery went well, Jende told us he got the best night's sleep he had in a long time and was grateful that his new community was helping his family feel so welcome and cared for!
