Lenny’s Story: Finding Dignity and Hope at Safe Families

Lenny and her three daughters were residents at The Whole Child’s Safe Families shelter in Echo Park. There they worked with housing navigators, case managers, and educational consultants to maintain stability and live safely together as a family. With the help of The Whole Child’s hardworking team, they are now renting their own apartment in Los Angeles and their future is bright.

“The Whole Child has helped my family reunify. The family shelter in Echo Park is a beautiful place. The staff are wonderful. They helped me with housing and all my furniture, everything my children need. My new place in LA is very nice, I enrolled my kids in school there. Everything’s really good now.”
