Spotlight on Success!

Alex’s Story* – Support from 3 Loaves and Fishes Programs

In January 2023, I came to Loaves and Fishes with my 14-year-old daughter, whom I have been raising on my own for the last five years. In November 2022, we because homeless. We lived out of hotels and were running out of money quickly. The Loaves and Fishes staff provided everything we needed and treated us very well. Because of their support, I was fortunate to locate an apartment, and they helped with our security deposit. Once we moved in, Loaves and Fishes set us up to become Food Pantry clients and provided much-needed housewarming items. I am thankful for all the help from Loaves and Fishes.
