EUDAMIN’S STORY: A BRIGHTER FUTURE
Eudamin approached her resident services coordinator when she found herself unable to pay her rent. Eudamin’s boss cut her work hours down and concurrently, her cousin demanded $60 a day to continue babysitting Eudamin’s young daughter. In addition, the courts had ordered her to pay child support for the daughter of whom she had full custody. Eudamin had endured a harsh and abusive life but the resident services coordinator was determined to help construct a better future for her. Eudamin’s resident services coordinator prepared a letter for her explaining her child support issues to her employer. Eudamin’s employer worked with her, as did the Fall River Housing and Department of Transitional Assistance, each of which made accommodations for her, which helped Eudamin and her daughter. Eudamin has started going to school to be a certified nursing assistant, is receiving legal assistance for her child support matter, and has begun seeing a mental health counselor. Eudamin states that she and her daughter are the happiest they’ve ever been.
