Atwinds provides affordable housing relocation assistance
to retirees, people with disabilities, and victims of Hurricane Katrina who have been displaced to Washington-metropolitan
area. Many of these families are unable to afford the high cost of living in this area.
DISASTER FAMILY NEW HOME & DONATED VAN!
Atwinds was able to relocate a disabled mother and her family from Baltimore, Maryland
to Rocky Mount, North Carolina, within 2 months of contacting our organization. The young mother was paralyzed during a domestic
violence incident. As a result, her parents moved her to New Orleans to care for her and her son. However, 6 months later
when Hurricane Katrina hit, the family was displaced in Baltimore and struggled financially due to the high cost of living.
Atwinds resources and dedication
made it possible for the mother to become the proud owner of a new 3-bedroom single-family home in a newly developed community
in North Carolina. Her parents continue to care for her and her son.
