Preventing Homelessness

“Side by Side builds trusted relationships with local landlords. One particular landlord we worked with had a newly single mother of three whose husband had walked out and drained their bank account as a tenant. He referred her to Side by Side and knowing that she was coming to us for assistance, the landlord did not move forward on eviction papers.

Thank you so much for your gift of paying our rent. This took an enormous weight off of our shoulders and we are so grateful! Thank you for all you do!”
