What would you do if you had no one to turn to when you needed help?
Many times, we take for granted the support system around us.
Job loss, child care, relationships issues, health problems, financial support...etc. It is a blessing to have trustworthy family and friends to turn to during tough times.
But what if you didn't have that support? Or what if the support around you is toxic? Can you image if you you had to decide between 1. going to work and leaving a child with an unsafe person or 2. not going to work at all to stay with a child and then possibly end up homeless? This just one example that is a reality for many people in Chicago and around the world.
