Help when she needed it most.

With the support of donors like you, Wendy* received financial assistance from Two Ten this winter. She was kind enough to share her story.

“I’ve worked in footwear for over 13 years as a store manager and during that time I referred many of my employees to Two Ten, but I never thought I would need the help myself.

It’s been a rough year. A reoccurring medical condition forced me to leave the job I loved so that I could work on getting well. Thankfully I was able get the treatment I needed but after several months of recovery and over a year of unemployment, I found myself battling eviction and struggling to catch up.

I was lucky to get a new job towards the end of the year but the tidal wave of medical bills coupled with all of my other monthly expenses put me deep in debt and on the verge of losing my home as the winter months rolled in. It was only then that I remembered Two Ten and made the call, and I’m so happy I did.

You brought me current with my mortgage and gas bill and gave me the ability to focus on my future. Thank you is not enough to say, but I thank you.”
