A feeling of security through support

Woman holding baby and toddler looking on“Beth” was working the night shift and struggling to find consistent overnight childcare. Eventually, she was forced to quit her job to stay home and care for her children. She became concerned about falling behind with her bills while she looked for another position, so she went to the Dorchester Resource Connection Center for support. Our staff was able to reach out to Help of Summerville to cover one month’s rent and worked with another partner to help with her utility bill.  She later shared that she felt more secure having the breathing room she needed to support her children while she found a job that works for her family’s needs.
