Lauryn is a single mom who was so used to taking care of everyone else that she would put herself into deep financial trouble and emotional distress in order to help others. When Lauryn was on the path to eviction, her landlord referred her to Vine Maple Place. With her eviction stopped and the threat of homelessness avoided, Lauryn and her case manager assessed her need for training to manage her money and her deep need to set boundaries. Lauryn says, "I am so grateful for the services offered at Vine Maple Place.They didn't just help me become financially stable, they helped me take better emotional care of myself and use my resources to meet my family's needs first so they are safe and stable. I'm a better mother...and I learned I can still be a generous and caring person but with the right limits." It's estimated that close to 300 families are in danger of falling into homelessness in 2017.
