Story of Hope

Meera’s Story

Meera was struggling to find enough work during the pandemic, which caused financial setbacks. Then, soon after getting a new job she was exposed to COVID-19 and had to quarantine for two weeks without pay. This made Meera’s financial situation worse and she was almost three months behind on rent when she contacted Love INC. When Love INC spoke with her landlord, they assured us that Meera was a great tenant with genuine setbacks. Love INC partnered with the Cleveland Foundation to get Meera caught up on rent. She was very grateful and sent Love INC a thank you note saying, “I would like to thank everyone for their assistance in helping me in my time of need. It is truly a blessing to know that there are still resources and people that are willing to help those in need. Thank you again, God bless!”
