April is a single mother of four children. She's always done everything in her power to make sure her children are taken care and have everything they need. She's worked, maintained a household, and all around has done everything right. Up until recently, April and her family were doing perfectly fine, until a tragic event occurred. April is the unfortunate victim of domestic violence. As if the abuse wasn't already severe enough on its own, it eventually induced a stroke in April, causing her to be hospitalized. During this time, April lost her job, her housing, and what she cared most about - her children. When all hope seemed lost, April was referred to Family Promise. Once April was safely in our shelter, we helped her get back on track, get her kids back, and quickly secure housing. April, now lives in a safe, secure home with all of her children.
