In Her Own Words
“Being able to provide assistance to state and local governments as they help individuals and families to stay in their homes, stay healthy, and afford other necessities such as food and medicine is the basis for building strong communities, while empowering more individuals and families to overcome poverty and homelessness. This is what living is all about.”
