Easing the Burden

Posted by Kelly Voss on

“Tina” is a recent widow and single mom who has not been able to work because of COVID-19. She has severe underlying health conditions that have left her and her kids alone and isolated throughout the pandemic. Tina is constantly working to be the mom her kids need and to provide a healthy and happy childhood for them. After fleeing an abusive situation and experiencing homelessness, she is doing everything she can to find stability for her family.

Despite her health problems and challenging circumstances, Tina is not giving up! She has goals of being able to work again and drive on her own. Grocery shopping is especially challenging for Tina because she is currently unable to drive and has to bring her small children with her. Even when she is able to get to the store, her limited budget makes it difficult to purchase the essential items her family needs.

Our partner church, Nazareth Lutheran Church was able to provide Tina and her kids food and household supplies, easing the burden Tina usually bears alone. She was overwhelmed with gratitude! Tina’s hope for her and her kids' future is huge, and she is ready to conquer any obstacle that comes her way!
