In efforts to meet the increase of families in need during this pandemic, Human Options launched our Keep Our Neighbors Safe at Home campaign. Through our community’s generous support, we raised over $350,000. This support has made it possible to continue to provide victims and survivors life-saving services including: a safe place to stay, access to essential items, counseling, legal advocacy and support during this time of crisis.In addition to financial support, our Human Options Heroes provided meals, essential supplies, resources, and letters of hope to individuals and families in the program. Adriana is just one of our neighbors our community kept safe at home.
“Being trapped in isolation with my abuser, I was becoming more afraid as the abuse continued to escalate. It came to the point that I was so afraid for the safety of my children and myself, I left without money or a plan.
I am so thankful that I was connected to Human Options’ Second Step transitional housing program. It has been hugely beneficial – I have been able to limit the number of people we’re in contact with, while still benefiting from being part of a community who are all experiencing the same thing, and accessing resources provided by Human Options.
I am really, really grateful to those who have supported Human Options during this pandemic. Living here has been life-changing for me and my kids.”
