A teacher referred a family to the CIS family liaison after a parent/teacher conference. This single mom had just lost her job and didn’t know where to turn. The family liaison was able to gather a few things for her two children and give her a donated Fred Meyer gift card. Through the partnership with Lakeridge Lutheran Church, she was also able to give her a check to help with her utility bill.

When the woman came to pick up the supplies and check, she started crying. She appreciated having the family liaison who understood her situation. She didn’t know what she would have done without this help.
