Mia, a single mother of 2 sons was “kicked out of home with no warning, no money and no plan”. She took her children to a shelter and vowed to make a change. Mia “Pounded the pavement” until finally finding employment. She was able to save up for her money for the first months rent and a security deposit on her home aftths of budgeting. Her employment has now ended, leaving her in an apartment with no beds or other furniture, except for a small couch that she has managed to hang on to through it all. Mia did not want to let go of her couch as it reminds her of what she has overcome. Mia thanks Humble Design for providing the necessities that she was unable to get on her own and she knows that her boys will be so happy and want to spend more time at home.
