“God answered our prayers.”
Adam and Ashley had everything they could want – a good marriage, steady jobs and a happy home in Mississippi for their two small children. Then the unthinkable happened. “Our house was destroyed by a hurricane,” Adam says.
They moved to California to make a fresh start, found jobs and rented a house. But the landlord sold it out from under them and they found themselves homeless, living in their car. “We were working 20 hours a day doing Postmates and DoorDash, trying to make enough money for a hotel room,” Ashley says.
“I was worried sick every night,” Adam adds. “Some nights we made enough for a hotel, but many nights we didn’t.”
Eventually, they couldn’t make their car payment and it was repossessed, leaving them with no way to work and no place to sleep. “We had no money. We had nothing,” Ashley says. “At 3 o’clock in the morning, we were sitting on the side of the road with our kids. We didn’t know what to do.”
It was then a stranger referred them to 211 LA County, and through LA Family Housing, the Davises were placed in our Genesis House. “A weight was lifted off our shoulders,” Ashley says.
“It felt amazing to have shelter and safety.”
Within a week, Ashley was hired at OnTrac and Adam will soon be starting work as a painter. “All we needed was a stable place for a couple of weeks so we could get work,” he says.
They plan to save money and find an apartment as soon as possible. “It will be amazing to have our own sanctuary for our children to grow,” Ashley says.
You may never meet the Davis family, but they’re eternally grateful to YOU for your support – today, their hearts are filled with new hope for the future. “When we were at our lowest, Genesis House helped us and made us feel like we weren’t alone in this,” Ashley says. “God answered our prayers.”
