Stephanie and her two daughters, ages 5 and 6, lived in an unstable environment in which they had to flee. Stephanie, a single mother, said they ended up homeless and lived in a shelter for a year. Eventually, Stephanie and her daughters left the shelter and moved into their first apartment. A year later, Stephanie discovered mold inside the apartment in 2016 and said it escalated in 2017. The family had to move out while waiting for the apartment complex to relocate them, Stephanie said. They became homeless again and moved back into a shelter until the complex relocated them to a new apartment. Healthy Families Orange and Orlando Health referred Stephanie to The Mustard Seed for furniture.
“The furniture received today will give two little girls an opportunity to have a normal life and a bed to call their own,” Stephanie said. “Receiving this furniture makes me feel like I can give my girls a better life and a home. Thank you.”
