Story of Hope

Desiree’s Story

Desiree is a single woman who needed assistance with her rent. She recently lost her sister who shared the rental payment along with all her other bills. She had been looking for a new roommate but had not been able to find one. In partnership with Community West Foundation, Love INC was able to cover one month’s rent. When Desiree was notified that the payment had been sent to the landlord, she became very emotional and said, “I can’t thank you enough for your help. I don’t know what I would have done without your help.”
