Dual Success from Brentwood Shelter
A CHI family that had been living at the organization’s Supervised Family Residence in Brentwood moved into a permanent rental on May 1. Though the move was initially delayed due to the client’s unemployment and subsequent inability to prove to the Community Development Corporation of Long Island that she could maintain the cost of utilities, the client was able to attain employment as an Assistant Manager at Walmart in Islandia. The client has been happy and successful in her new job, and her children were recently enrolled in a regular daycare program. The family has resubmitted its housing application to the CDC and they look forward to moving before their Section 8 voucher expires on July 8.
Another Brentwood client obtained employment in Huntington. She is currently looking into room rental options in Huntington so she can be closer to her employer as well as her family support system.
