Devin's Story 

Memories of happy holidays don't exist for a child like Devin. Devin was recently removed from his home after suffering from years of neglect. He often fed himself dry cereal when he was hungry. When there wasn't dry cereal, he drank water so his belly would feel full. When the water got shut off, a neighbor finally noticed Devin trying to drink from her water hose, and made the call that would finally get Devin the help he desperately needed. Today, Devin has a team of caregivers who support him every day. He eats three meals a day, goes to school, and for the first time in his life he’s excited about the holidays! 

Sara & Dante's Story 

Sara and Dante live in a homeless shelter with their three young children. Dante lost his job and the young family quickly exhausted their savings while he looked for another one. Having to leave the only home the children had ever known, hit them hard. Leaving behind their furniture and belongings because they had nowhere to go, was the most difficult thing Sara and Dante had ever experienced. Not being able to provide for their children, is heartbreaking. For Sara and Dante, it won’t be a happy season until they can find a safe and affordable apartment to call home.
