Megan* was in a tough spot. After fleeing from her home due to domestic violence, she and her two children were desperate to find a place to stay. Luckily, Megan worked for an apartment complex, so she rented an apartment there, even though it was a bit more than she could afford. Her boss offered her a deal to have money taken out of her check to cover security deposit and rent.
Then health problems, doctor appointments, and problems at her child’s school caused her to miss work, and as an hourly worker, if she didn’t work, she didn’t get paid. She was just getting enough hours in to meet the agreement for rent. Then her car broke down and she was facing likely eviction.
Megan turned to PROP for help. The PROP case managers quickly evaluated her case and got her the help she needed: financial help so she could catch up on expenses; short term counseling on next steps; and a resource connection to the PROP SHOP for furniture and other housing related items.
