This was a first of it’s kind request and has left a real impact on all of us here at Claire’s Place Foundation.
Isis was introduced to us by our friends at The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s Compass Program, a personalized service to help you with the insurance, financial, legal and other issues you are facing when living with this disease.
Isis is a 27 year old woman with cystic fibrosis who found herself, due to some extenuating circumstances, homeless and living in a shelter. Immediately our hearts went out to her as we could not imagine how difficult it must be to care for such a high maintenance illness while not having a place to call home.
Over the next 6 weeks, we communicated regularly as she tried various avenues for support in finding a place to live. At one point, she was hospitalized and didn’t have anywhere to go when released with all her medications and continuous need for breathing treatments.
Isis worked very hard and was finally able to find an apartment complex that gives people like her a second chance but she could not afford the deposit plus utilities in order to move in. We were thrilled to be able to provide that for her through our generous supporters and are happy to say that she is settling in to her new apartment and working at a new job!
“I feel so relieved to have Claire’s Place Foundation on my side. I am a strong believer in God and I believe He sent them to me to help get me out of homelessness. I want to send blessing to you all and your whole group for helping me. It brings tears of joy to my eyes!” ~ Isis
Our hearts are with you Isis ~ we hope this new home offers you a fresh start and a clean, safe environment where you can take the best possible care of yourself and your illness.
Lots of love to all of you who help make this important program possible!
