TCP graduate family quote: “My family had never experienced homelessness before & never thought it would happen to us. Trying to pay the bills, affording the huge increase in caring for our children and getting behind on just a few bills led us to such a dark place. We just needed a temporary hand up and now I work with TCP to help others learn the structure & budgeting skills needed to survive. My family is housed, stable and now we can give back because of The Carying Place.”
