Love INC Impact Stories

Drained and Anxious

Posted by Kelly Voss on

“Ali” is the sole caregiver to his stepmother and is trying to get her home put back together after his father passed away. He grew up in the area but moved to another city 10 years ago. He returned recently to care for his father and stepmother, temporarily leaving behind his wife and young children. When Ali arrived in town, he realized his parents' home was in major need of repairs and cleaning to make it a safe, livable environment. Shortly after Ali arrived, his father passed away, leaving Ali to make sure his elderly stepmother was safe.

Ali has been working towards getting his stepmother’s home back into good condition and helping her move towards a life of stability as a single widow. His goal is to clean and repair the house for his stepmother then return home to his wife and children.

Ali received essentials and cleaning supplies from Love INC’s partner church, Prince of Peace Lutheran in Evansdale. These necessities helped Ali complete the necessary work at his stepmother's home and ensure she is set up to maintain it when he leaves. When he attended his appointment, he said he was trying to stay positive and keep his head up, but he was drained and anxious to be with his kids again. Ali was grateful Love INC was there to assist him and has peace of mind knowing his stepmother has a resource to reach out to in the future if she needs it.
