MY HFH Story: Yahaira O.

How the blessing unfolded for my family at HFH:

When I came to [Harford Family House] I really didn’t know what to expect. Myself and my two little boys were in need of help. With nowhere to go, not being from Maryland, and coming out of a difficult situation, we were lost. Then we came to Harford Family House. The resources, time, dedication, support and love that my family received since day one at the organization was something I was not expecting, nor was I prepared for.

When we walked into the doors of our new apartment – fully furnished with two bedrooms, toiletries and all I almost fell to my knees. Within two months, Harford Family House helped me to get a job and secure childcare. Thanks to them, I no longer felt alone or hopeless. One of my fondest memories of Harford Family House is the Christmas we spent there. It’s something I’ll never forget. The amount of support we received was truly overwhelming; my boys still talk about that Christmas to this day.

When my time was up at Harford Family House I was prepared to be on my own and take care of my family. Today, I have a great job working for the government and have recently moved into a three-bedroom apartment. We went from having nothing at all to my boys having their own rooms! They are happy and thriving. It’s hard to put into words what Harford Family House did for me and my family. The gave us more than just a place to live – they gave me the confidence and push I needed to succeed in life and changed me as a person.

Thank you, Harford Family House. I will be forever grateful.
