Amy's Story

Amy became homeless in the summer of 2017 as a result of health issues.  She and her teenage son were housed through BCOC’s Rapid Rehousing program. When Amy’s housing situation stabilized, Amy transitioned to BCOC’s ES Program to have continued support as she worked to increase her household income. This summer, Amy’s car was often in the garage for repairs. Amy was placed on the wait list for a donated vehicle and she became a recipient of a donated car just at the time when her car ceased to work.

Amy is an absolutely wonderful parent, a dedicated employee and a very kind woman who looks forward to continuing her economic stability and caring for her child.
