Jacinda is a single mom of two children. Prior to Covid-19 she was employed, stable and able to provide for her family. However, once the pandemic hit, she lost her job and found it difficult to make ends meet.
She traveled out of state to find employment and family support while her teenage son stayed in the area with friends. Like many of us, she had no idea the pandemic would continue so long. She desperately wanted to be reunited with her son and recently moved back to the Cedar Valley. While she's uncertain if their family will remain in the area permanently, she needed some extra support during this time of transition. She moved back with very few belongings and was in need of personal and household essential items.
We scheduled a Gap Ministry appointment for her at one of our partner churches and she was grateful to receive toothbrushes, shampoo, and other toiletries as well as household supplies like toilet paper, paper towels and garbage bags.
Our Intake Volunteer prayed for Jacinda and her family and their specific requests were added to our Prayer Chain email so we can continue praying for them as they decide what comes next.
