Your support helps local families thrive.
“A few years ago, I was homeless and pregnant with my second son, Dante, and unable to care for my first son, Sylus, as I battled with addiction and couldn’t provide for him. When Dante was born, I knew I needed to turn my life around and do things differently.
After leaving the hospital, I entered a family-centered treatment program for women with substance use disorders and for the first time was able to maintain my sobriety. Upon completion of the program, I knew I still needed support as I transitioned to the next stage in my life and was thrilled to be accepted into the Front Door Agency’s Transformational Housing Program.
Here, the staff provided me with the structure I needed. They helped me set realistic goals and understand the importance of furthering my education, saving money, and working towards a career I enjoyed that would allow me to support myself and my boys.
I began working full-time as a solar panel installer for a NH based company and enrolled in a 4-year apprenticeship program to become a licensed electrician. My life was finally coming together! The only thing I was missing was my older son, Sylus. I persevered and Sylus came home to live with us in early 2023.
I am proud of myself for managing to work full-time, being a mom to my boys, all while maintaining my sobriety.
Today, I am two years into my employment where I am killing it and more than halfway through my schooling to become a licensed Master Electrician. I receive continued guidance from my case manager. Without their affordable housing, there’s no way I would be able to afford my own apartment while paying for childcare and all my other living expenses. For the first time in my life, I have goals and I am well on my way to reaching them. Once I complete my Master Electrician program and have my license, I hope to become a Project Manager for my current employer.”
Your support of the Front Door Agency has helped me rebuild my life and be the mom I always wanted to be. I hope you keep the Agency and the families they serve in your heart again this year!
Together we helped more than 1,699 individuals in Greater Nashua this year!
