Brittany and her 5-year-old son moved into their first-ever new home thanks to supporters like you. For her and thousands of others, Interfaith Outreach staff members like Emily Adams provide a beacon of hope.
Growing up in the Wayzata area, Brittany spent most of her teenage years in foster care. “It was difficult to find a way to belong,” she said. “When I came to Interfaith Outreach, my case manager Emily helped me work around obstacles and find resources I couldn’t have found on my own.” Brittany stretched her budget while using the Food Shelf. But when she was approved as a resident of Medina Townhomes, an affordable housing neighborhood, the huge life changes began. Brittany worked with Emily to connect with the proper school support services for her young child and to furnish their first home.
As soon as her son settles into kindergarten, Brittany is determined to work with Employment Services at Interfaith Outreach to continue to pursue her career. “I love to cook – eventually I’d like to get into the catering business.”
For Brittany, a place to call home is just the beginning.
