Tynesha...

Success at the Partnership

Tynesha hoped to make a better life for her and her five children. Having been invited to stay with a friend in Pompano Beach, Tynesha and her family were welcomed in her home as she looked for steady employment.

Unfortunately, her living situation took an unfortunate turn and just a couple of months into her stay, Tynesha's friend put her and her family out on the street. Scared and alone, the family of six lived in hotels until the money ran out. They were then forced to sleep in the car until Tynesha picked up the phone and dialed 2-1-1. 

Eventually, the family members found their way to the Partnership where the road to restoring their lives began. 

"I was so relieved that something had come available for us because I was stressed out and tired of not being able to sleep," Tynesha said. "I knew when I got that call that this was the beginning for us."

Tynesha said that she found the support she needed from her case managers at the Partnership along with fellow program participants, who were experiencing many of the same life challenges as she was. While in shelter, Tynesha secured a job and began to save her money. 

Because she was able to earn a steady income, Tynesha was considered for and eventually placed in the Families First! Program. After spending three months in shelter saving, Tynesha and her five children moved into a three bedroom house.

"It was something I always prayed for," said Tynesha. "I wouldn't say that everything has been great for me because I have had my ups and downs like any other person. I was just blessed to be on my own and taking care of my children."

Once discharged to stable housing, Tynesha was able to land a better paying job at Burlington Coat Factory.  And because of the in-home case management and support provided by the Families First!, Tynesha is on the right path to providing safety, security and hope for a better future for her children: Akyiah, Amanti, Amir, Ivyonna, and Nyriah.

"I am blessed that my family has been supportive and I am able to get a lot of support from my case manager," she said. "It has been a struggle for me these past few months, but I am getting stronger every day."
