Major Changes in Funding Affecting Denton County Families

A Denton Family Story 

Today’s mom was hopeless and searching for shelter for herself and her 2-year-old child.  She had feared for her safety in light of the domestic violence in her home and was forced to leave or be subjected to further abuse and endangerment of her child.   

GH/GLR was already serving one of her siblings and was able to then offer safety and hope to her.  Our case managers worked to provide her with confidential and individualized care that allowed her to obtain temporary emergency shelter.  She was also able to seek out counseling and employment through community resource referrals given by her case manager.  

We are so encouraged to be able to meet people where they are at and offer support and resources, which ultimately lead to hope for the future.  

While temporary emergency shelter is a vital pathway away from homelessness, there is a desperate need for long term shelter for these families when their temporary shelter time is expended. She is a perfect candidate for our signature Rise With Grace program where she will be equipped with housing, case management, life skills courses, childcare assistance, and job readiness skills to move her closer to independent living.  

Will you join us so that we can continue to empower families just like these?
