When Beth came to Cornerstone NCT for help, her husband had told her she and their four children were no longer welcome in his home and had three weeks to move out. He would allow them to take their clothes, but nothing else.

Beth was a stay-at-home mom for many years, but had recently started a low-paying full-time job. She was able to save enough to cover a deposit for an apartment, but couldn’t afford to furnish it. Cornerstone was able to supply all of the basics as well as additional items to make the apartment even more comfortable for the family during their transition.

Beth attended our Finance 101 class, where she made a budget to cover her current bills as well as a plan to move forward. She is still working to secure a better job, but has been able to pay her bills each month.

Local residents can join Cornerstone in giving hope to families like Beth’s by attending the second annual Vision Dinner & Silent Auction on Saturday, Oct. 26 from 6:30-9 p.m. at Prosper High School. Purchase tickets online for $20 per person at cornerstonenct.org. Hors de oeuvres and dinner are provided.
