At Columbia Life Network, we work together with local agencies to change lives.
No Longer Homeless
Hi, my name is Tanaya Sanford and I am writing to tell you about my experience at the Columbia Life Network office.
Well, being a client at Columbia Life Network office they help me a lot. When I didn’t have enough money until I got paid they help me with bus passes to get to work.
If it wasn’t for them I would have lost my job. When I needed help to fill out welfare papers for food stamps and insurance they helped fill it out, fax it and all.
Then when I became homeless I was able to come in to use the computers to look for houses, jobs and anything else I needed the computers for.
They also helped me when I lost my ID, social security card and birth certificate. They helped me get out to the resources that help me get those things because I wasn’t able to get a job or place to live without them.
Then Jamie helped me apply for nursing school at HACC. Then after they helped me get housing, food stamps a day when I ran out of food and had to wait for my food stamps card to come in they reached out to someone who helped me get a $20 gift card to Musser’s.
Every time I go in here they always give me information on food banks, clothing bank, food giveaways.
In July Rebecca came to Columbia Life Network barely able to walk due to a very swollen left knee. She was struggling with mobility and to take care of her 10 year old daughter Blessings.
Not having a family member or friend to watch Blessings made it hard to schedule a doctor appointment, a problem made even harder due to not having her own car.
Columbia Life Network provided Rebecca with a referral to Bethany Christian Services Safe Families for Children program where she was connected to a family that provided Rebecca a respite and watched
Blessings as well as transportation to seek medical care for her knee. As a result of seeing a doctor a benign tumor was found and a medical procedure scheduled to remove it.
Today Rebecca has made a full recovery and has complete mobility thanks to the timely and appropriate referral made by Columbia Life Network.
