Single father of three preschool-aged children and originally from Kentucky came into SMARM for assistance. The children’s mother recently just “left us”, he reported. Reported that he was forced to quit his job after 1 year due to no childcare. Says he had a “good job” that “I loved” and just had to stay home and keep children. His family support all lives in Kentucky and after much consideration, he decided it was best for him and the children to return there.
SMARM was able to fill up his vehicle with gasoline, give him gift cards for more gas if necessary and provide snacks for the road-trip home. This father was clearly more hopeful upon leaving our office than when he came in!
