This is Meagan ...

Meagan, her husband and three children have been forced out of their rental home due to a fire. They don’t have rental insurance and have nowhere to go until they can arrange other accommodations.

What should Meagan do?

What should Meagan do?

  • A

    Stay in a hotel for the week. This one week will cost more than their monthly rent, putting them behind on their bill payments.

  • B

    Split up the family with various out-of-town relatives taking the children out of school, and missing work for travel.

What happened?

Not wanting to split their family apart, Meagan and her family turned to a United Way funded program that provides emergency assistance after a disaster. Their family was able to stay in a hotel until they could make other living arrangements and get back on their feet.
