As we all know, 2020 has been a tough year. Our #SuccessStory this week highlights the ways our FamilyWorks Program, operated in collaboration with Chicago Housing Authority, helps families navigate challenging times. Gale is a South Side resident in her 60’s raising her 5-year-old granddaughter.

In April, after the pandemic hit, Gale called Yaneth, one of our Community Outreach Specialists, to let her know she was in need of hygiene supplies. Yaneth reached out to My Block, My Hood, My City to coordinate a supply delivery for Gale.

In May, Gale reached out for assistance getting her granddaughter enrolled in Kindergarten. Yaneth helped Gale research local elementary school options to make the best school choice for her family. Yaneth also helped Gale through the online school registration process.

In October, Yaaneth was contacted by Gale, who had a need for food assistance. Yaneth quickly arranged for a box of groceries for Gale’s family provided by Apostolic Church. The box, full of fresh vegetables, dairy products, and other items, was delivered directly to Gale’s home.

Last month, Gale received support from Yaneth and the FamilyWorks team as she applied for utilities assistance through CEDA: Community and Economic Development Association of Cook County, Inc. She was also referred to work with one of E&ES’ Housing Coaches after expressing a need for an ADA accessible apartment.

Currently, Yaneth is working with Gale on the Santa for a Day effort. Toys will be delivered to Gale’s home so her granddaughter can experience the joy of gifts on Christmas Day.

Residents counting on our team for support when they most need it is what we are all about at E&ES.

Stacey began working with her Family Coach, Matthew, 2 ½ years ago as part of the Chicago Housing Authority FamilyWorks program. She did not have much work experience and was hoping to enhance her skill set. Working with E&ES, Stacey was able to make big strides towards reaching her goals. #SuccessStory

When Matthew began working with Stacey, she was struggling to find childcare for her 3-year-old daughter. Without childcare, Stacey could not devote time to work and furthering her education. Stacey’s family members we able help out to provide childcare.

Stacey’s dream was to go to college and earn her degree so she could practice as a nurse. Matthew helped her research local colleges and complete her FAFSA application. Stacey decided the Malcolm X College nursing program would be a great fit for her, so she enrolled.

Stacey knew she would need to earn income while in school, so she worked with the Employment Placement Services staff at E&ES to find a job that met her needs. She found a position at a McDonald's on the West Side where she now works 30 hours a week.

It is a heavy load, juggling full-time college courses, 30 hours a week at work, and being a mom. Stacey is managing to find balance and get closer to realizing her dream of practicing as a nurse! Matthew will continue to offer coaching to Stacey as she continues her journey.
