Tom and his two grown sons spent time in the HHC shelter about a year ago. Today they are housed but struggling with ongoing health challenges and very limited income. Their landlord contacted HHC concerned that the stress created by health issues and limited income are pushing them to a crisis point. They are often without food, are behind on rent and are living in an almost empty apartment. They are getting overwhelmed and discouraged. HHC staff has reached out with some household goods, help applying for rental assistance and offers of support. What would help give more energy to restart, however, is some additional help to make their home more livable including pots, dishes and utensils. They also have given no thought to celebrating Christmas as that seems totally out of reach but with some donations, we could help them pull together a simple celebration.
