Often times homelessness is the result of a single circumstance. An unpaid utility bill, broken down car, or emergency doctors appointment can lead to disaster. With almost 30% of all renters in the United States spending half of their income on housing, the stakes are always high for our community's most vulnerable.
For Tanille having her own bike meant transportation to her job, a way to see her children, and most importantly, the peace of mind associated with her own independence. After receiving a bike from our RHS team, Tanille was able to get her life back together by holding down a full-time job in her neighborhood and making it to her medical appointment. SSHH caseworkers expect Tanille to be on her way to permanent housing in no time.
Tanille's growth has inspired us. For some program participants, they are a bicycle away from independent living. And we want to deliver. If anyone would like to deliver a bike or bike parts, please contact us. We are accepting all related donations.
