Partners in Housing, Inc.
May 18, 2010

My story about Partners in Housing. I have been a single mother for nine years. I struggled in those years to make ends meet and finally I had hit rock bottom. I was living in Pueblo and driving to springs to work; I came home one night absolutely exhausted and I forgot my purse in my car. My car was broken into, my purse stolen and all my money taken. My bank did not replace all my money and so I had no way of paying for my apartment in Pueblo. I then heard about Partners in Housing from a friend and went to them for help. They took me in and for two years helped me to get a better paying job, get scholarships and financial aid for my schooling. By the end of my second year at Partners in Housing, I was able to buy my first house. During my two years at Partners in Housing, I was received by honest, compassionate people who cared about me and who truly wanted to see me have a happy, prosperous life. Partners in Housing provided a safe, stable environment for me and my daughter. We were always greeted with smiles, warmth and laughter. I graduated from Partners in Housing and received a scholarship from the University of Phoenix; this is a school that Partners in Housing works with to help others achieve a higher education. I am very grateful to the staff at Partners in Housing for all they did for my daughter and I.
