I am a single mother of 4. I was recently laid off from my job. My unemployment lasted a total of 4 months. At the same time my ex-husband decided to take the summer off from paying child support, which left me in a bind with my children’s school supplies. I had to pinch off of my rent to afford supplies. I then received an eviction letter, but CAPS stepped in and saved us. The assistance we received gave us the time we needed to stop the eviction process, and I was able to find a new place for us to live within my new budget.
