After fifty years of full time employment, Angela had built a beautiful life for her family and was on the cusp of finally slowing down. That changed in 2020 with the tragic death of her son. Steeped in grief, Angela experienced the economic downturn of the COVID-19 pandemic as a blur. She lost her job. Her building owners raised the rent. Like so many others, she could no longer afford the home she’d lived in for years.

By the time she came to the Hub, Angela had exhausted all of her savings. “I didn’t know what the Hub was at that moment, but what I do know is that day was the first time someone looked me in the eye and really saw me,” remembers Angela.

We welcomed Angela into the Hub Hotel, a barrier-free shelter for women and their children. At the Hub, Angela had access to the space and resources she needed to get back on her feet. After a few months of dedicated support, she was able to move into a place of her own. “I know that whatever the next step is, I won’t be going back,” she says. “It’s going to be something new, something better.”

This year, we opened our new Hub campus, expanding our capacity to serve and shelter individuals experiencing homelessness. We rely on your generosity to Create Kindness.
