Always a hard worker and go-getter, Nadeen never expected to be homeless. Family issues and a job loss disrupted the successful life she had built for herself, and Nadeen and her two daughters had no option but to move to a shelter.
She was only momentarily down, but never out. Within one month of moving into Community LINC, Nadeen paid off her outstanding debts, secured a great job and found a permanent home for her family.
Nadeen's resilience and hard work will secure a brighter future for her family.
Antonio AND ELAINE
Upon discovering their pregnancy, Tony and Elaine were excited to start a new chapter of their lives in Kansas City. Months later, the pregnant couple and their two sons were living in their broken-down truck.
Determination to provide a stable home for their family brought them to Community LINC. While here, the sons enjoyed Children's Programming and spending time with staff. Elaine secured a position to support the entire family. They are now living in their own home, and say Community LINC brought them together as a family to continue their new life together.
Teenesha’s struggle to find a safe place to raise her two sons began long before she moved into Community LINC. She made the first step toward security by escaping a violent home. Sadly, she wasn’t given the time she needed to regroup. Instead, the young family bounced from shelter to shelter and eventually were present during two drive-by shootings.
Teenesha was thrilled to finally have a safe and stable home, and be out of the shelter system. The young family now has a home of their own and Teenesha has secured employment and childcare for the boys.
Monica and her teenagers lived in an unstable community that led to them losing their home. The family came to Community LINC after spending some time at a shelter.
Monica and her children participated in all of Community LINC's Supportive Services. Monica found employment near her permanent home and is enjoying the position and her new sense of responsibility.
