A former U.S. Marine and master electrician, Jeff found himself where he never thought he would be...living in a shelter with his son while his wife had to live in a separate shelter for women. After working steadily and living in a town house in Alexandria, he found himself part of his company's downsizing initiative. First the job loss hit, then unexpected family medical bills, and soon Jeff and his family were facing eviction.

Through the help of Jeff's case management worker at The Carpenter House, he was referred to the Shelters to Shutters program and we were able to successfully pair him with a great opportunity provided by our property management partner, Equity Residential. Now Jeff is thriving as a full time maintenance tech in Alexandria, Virginia.

Together we will help more people like Jeff throughout the country. Thank you for your support!
