I became unemployed and could no longer afford my rent, so I had to move. I was then referred to Beyond Shelter whom assisted me with shelter services. In addition they assisted me with low income housing, community resources, food, sheets, toys, etc.

I lost my apartment when I tried to move to a better place and gave my landlord 30 days notice. When I tried to move to my new place, it was already rented out, and my landlord would not let me stay. Things went from bad to worse and I ended up in a mission with my son and daughter. Then, Beyond Shelter helped me to move out of Skid Row and into a temporary motel. Then, I had a master-leased apartment, and then I got the opportunity to apply for my own apartment at Broadway Village II. Now I have a great job and my kids are going to great schools. I volunteer there too. I feel that

My apartment at Broadway Village I is quiet, lovely and nice. I feel like the services have been helpful in supplying all m needs. My two kids love the place, and I feel very comfortable here. I heard about Beyond Shelter two years ago - and I would not change anything about the program. I feel like everything I need is right here. I have an open invitation for help. - Jessica Jordan

Our family would like to thank beyond Shelter for all that they have done for us. We now live in an apartment that we can call our own. At Broadway Village II, our children can play outside and attend other activities that have been offered through the Service Coordinator and outside agencies. We have enjoyed the mosaic classes and the ladies night out, which I look forward to. Our apartment is comfortable and spacious. Our family is glad to have a roof over our heads. My husband and I feel like a family now. We watch TV together and have dinner together every night. When we moved in, we had nothing. Beyond Shelter provided a stove, refrigerator, and dishwasher. We also have an air conditioner for hot days and a warm heater for the cold days. When I moved in I fell in love with the beautiful carpet that was in all the rooms. We are centrally located to my children's school and my husband's job. There are bus stops near a shopping center where I can conveniently do my shopping. There are bus stops near our apartment complex, which has made traveling to different places easy for my family and I to get around. I really appreciate that my family and I were allowed to stay at Broadway Village II. We are glad to have a place called home.

I like living at Broadway Village II because it gives me the feeling of a healthy environment for my children to play in. It is especially unique because our residents are people of different nationalities and we can share experiences, culture and food. I like the apartment set up because it is spacious and my kids have room to play and enjoy themselves. We are very comfortable. I like the two bathrooms because it accommodates my large family and a dishwasher that I can use if i do not feel like washing dishes. I feel safe here because the building is secured and with an on site manager so I know if there is a problem it would be quickly resolved. Because I have Cerebral Palsy and sometimes in need of special accommodations, the services offered at beyond Shelter has helped me receive the resources that i need to make my stay comfortable. Where I live there are mosaic classes, exercise classes, and a lot of activities to keep the residents active. I am proud to live in my apartment and happy that my children and I now have a place that we can call home. Thank you -Arabia Baylock

Hello my name is Tamika Coleman. Since i moved to Broadway Village II my children and I live comfortable and secure. I feel very blessed to be able to dwell in a place where I have easy access to my children's schools, bus stops, and to the different stores. I live in a four bedroom apartment, which allows my children and myself to enjoy family time, have dinner together, and watch movies. I really enjoy my dishwasher. I never have had a dishwasher before, so the time i would normally be washing dishes is spent with my children. Beyond Shelter has made my life easier because they support me with offering resources to help me with my children and to my brother who was a mental disability. The Site Service Coordinator has been instrumental in referring me to the right agencies to get the help I needed for my brother. Beyond Shelter has organized activities that the whole family can enjoy and it has helped out little community come together as neighbors. I would like to take this time to thank Beyond Shelter for their caring support that they have given to help my family and I to a better quality of living.
