I stopped in to see Toni this week and she is doing great. She had just gotten off work and was hanging out with her dog, Shade. Before coming to Interfaith years ago, Toni and Shade were living in a tent in a friend’s back yard.
“It was okay. We were okay. That summer was hot, like 100+ hot. But I was able to go in and use the shower a couple times a week. We were doing okay.”
Now Toni has been in her Interfaith rental for almost four years. She will have been steadily employed by Subway for almost two years. Last month, she opened a savings account.
“I keep waiting for something bad to happen. Every time things start going good something happens. This is my home and I just want to make sure I keep it.”
