Thriving for a Better Life After an Unexpected Storm.

IMG_0766

Claudia and her family were heavily impacted by Hurricane Harvey, and then to make matters worse, her husband unexpectedly left the family after the hurricane.  Due to these catastrophic events, Claudia fell behind on bills, and her family’s mental health started taking a steep decline.  She learned about Easter SealsHarvey Program from a neighbor, and she contacted our case managers for rental assistance.  Claudia received direct client assistance funding to cover rent, utilities, and basic needs- but moreover, she received support, kindness, and help with finding resources from her case manager.  Claudia got enrolled in the Food Scholarship Program and is receiving ongoing one-on-one financial coaching.  These are supports that have helped Claudia and her family get back on their feet, and to a place where they are feeling a little more in control again.  As of her most recent financial coaching session, Claudia reported that things are better- she is currently working full time, receiving healthy food twice a month, and she is seeing a positive change in children’s behavior.  She says her children are smiling more and able to focus on the things they need to focus on, for example- getting ready for school- and not worrying about what food they are going to eat that night.  Claudia is thankful for Easter Seals Greater Houston and eager to learn more from financial coaching.
