COVID-19 Success Stories

Single mom struggling with rent

Rachel is a single mom that was let go from her job in June and did not qualify for the county’s Limited Rent Program. She was recently able to start work at a local Loudoun hotel. Because she was unemployed for several months, she was unable to pay rent. With help from our Faith Network, we were able to help cover her rent. Rachel is set to move forward with her life and stay in her home with her 12-year-old daughter.

Laid off from her job

Emily worked in the hospitality industry in Loudoun and was several months behind on her rent. In April she was furloughed due to COVID, but was recently let go from her job. Loudoun Cares provided assistance to her through the COVID-19 Emergency Relief Fund. She is now looking for a new job while staying in her home.

Reduced hours resulting from COVID19

Bob works at a local restaurant and has had reduced hours since the beginning of the pandemic. He is struggling to keep his young family safe in their home. We were able to help with several months of rent and utilities while also referring him to other nonprofits that could help with food, diapers, and job services. 

Thank you to our partners at Catholic Charities for helping us answer the call
