2 parent family and one child- This family came to The Salvation Army after being asked to leave her family's home and were living in their vehicle. They were able to secure low-income housing through Emeis apartments. The client's case manager was able to provide resources to assist the client with getting social security documentation for her son which was needed to apply for apartments, as well as complete a food stamp application for benefits. The client was also able to problem solve getting into mental health services due to increased anxiety of meeting in person by accessing telehealth services.
Parent & Son:
2 Parent Family & 4 Children were at risk of homelessness due to their apartment building being deemed un-inhabitable by the City of Davenport. Mom was lad off from her job in March of 2020 because of COVID-19. Dad received a decrease in hours and eventually had to find another job at a car dealership to support his family. He is currently making less money that he was prior to the pandemic. If the family did not find housing, they would be at a higher risk of getting COVID-19. The family qualified for funding through Davenport CDBG funding because they lost income due to COVID. They were able to locate housing in Davenport for their family but needed the assistance for move in costs. The Salvation Army was able to approve them for Deposit & 1st, 2nd, & 3rd month's rent.
