Just before Christmas, a survivor and their young children entered Arbour House, JBWS’ emergency safe house shelter. However, this survivor made a promise to their children – “we will celebrate our first holiday together in our own safe apartment.”
JBWS’ Rapid Rehousing case manager immediately began working with the family. Unfortunately, the process was complicated by the housing crisis and challenges finding housing that was affordable in Morris County.
Undeterred by these challenges, the rapid rehousing program was able to help this survivor find a house to rent with a move in date of mid-December. Because of JBWS’ rapid rehousing program, this survivor was able to keep their promise to their children and celebrate their first holiday in their own, safe place together.
