CFR Client Story: Tiffany

 

Tiffany worked as an administrative assistant for a local company until the coronavirus pandemic impacted her career. Her company was forced to demote her and reduce her hours.  Although Tiffany was grateful to still have a job, her salary decreased, and she was struggling to continue supporting herself and her 7-year-old child.

After several months of struggling to keep up, she found herself behind on many of her monthly bills. Feeling desperate and worried about maintaining her housing, Tiffany decided to contact The Center for Family Resources for assistance.   Within a few weeks she had an appointment with an ERA (Emergency Rental Assistance) case manager that was able to assess her situation and offer assistance to maintain stable housing for herself and her daughter.

Tiffany broke down in tears after learning that the she was eligible for the assistance. “I’m going through a lot right now. My mom is in the hospital fighting cancer and I can’t see her due to Covid. I can’t thank CFR enough for helping me during this difficult time.” – Tiffany

The Cobb County ERA (Emergency Rental Assistance) program was made available through the U.S. Treasury Department. CFR was granted funds by the Cobb County Board of Commissioners to provide rental assistance for Cobb residents impacted by COVID-19.
