Review for Self Enhancement, Inc., Portland, OR, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I came to Margot for help with rental assistance. She was able to help me that month, and really made me feel so grateful. A few weeks later she contacted me with a new program where the agency she worked with would help me with 6 months of partial payment for rental assistance. It made me feel like someone actually cared. I know she had me on her mind, and that when this opportunity came up she offered it to me. I can say with 100% centainty, that if I had not had that asistance, my 16 year old son and I would have been homeless. I was waiting to hear from disability and had $440 of income a month with $860 rent due. Margot was there to encourage me mentally and to let me know there was someone out there who did care about me and my son's well being. I have a growth on my brain that was causing severe headaches and depresion at the time. I can not thank Margot enough for the help her and her agency has given me. Thank you Margot for being a friend that I needed, sometimes a shoulder to cry on, and for reaching out to me and offering me the assistance you did. I will NEVER forget that. God Bless you all.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

My life. I would've been homeless and sick on the streets with my son if I hadn't recieve the help I did.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Have them recieve more funding so they could do what they did for me to more people and more families.
