Evelyn is 55 years old and has called Colorado home for 20 years. She’s single, and one tragic afternoon, she came home to find her condo severely damaged by a fire. The fire was not her fault, but her condo was unlivable. It started in an adjacent unit when a neighbor left hot coals in a trash can. Evelyn ended up living with a co-worker temporarily and desperately needed assistance finding new housing. Red Cross referred her to Our Front Porch, who spent three months working with Evelyn to secure new permanent housing. During that time, OFP met with her weekly to help her work through the stress and anxiety she experienced being displaced by this disaster. With the help of donated funds, Our Front Porch was able to provide much needed items like bras, underwear, and other basic clothing. She now calls her new apartment home.
