Dulce and son
Dulce
Dulce is a single, working mom who moved into IHI housing with her 1 year old son. Shortly after moving in, she heard about Resident Services and set up a meeting. When talking to IHI's Resident Services Coordinator, Dulce mentioned that she desperately needed furniture, as she had nothing in her studio apartment and was currently sleeping on the floor. IHI staff referred her to The Community Warehouse where she was able to get a day bed, couch, side table, kitchen utensils, linens and more. IHI's Emergency Fund paid to move Dulce's new items back to her apartment. Having furniture made the apartment feel like a real home and a place Dulce is proud to call her own. And her son loves having things to climb on in the living space! Having established a relationship via this successful referral experience, Resident Services staff is now working with Dulce to secure scholarships so she can go to school and pursue a career in human resources.
