County shares story on Hope Center family

In the 2020 Emmy award winning Hope Center documentary entitled "The Pathway Home," the film highlighted the successful move to housing by Laura Rivera, her children and dogs. Recently Ms. Rivera wrote to Hope Center staff with an update on her continued progress and success. Ms. Rivera writes, “I just want to write you again around this time of year. I know you stay very busy but you were in my heart. My family and myself have been doing great this year other then the normal busy day to day. I am proud to say I have gotten all my kids Christmas gifts before deadline. I did not go all out but enough to be blessed and we adopted a family near where I work. I have not bought a home just yet but I am working in Lewes, Delaware cooking again and living in Magnolia but loving every single day. I miss you all but you have helped me going on four years being homeless free with your tools that I was able to learn and teach my kids too! Lewis, one of my kids with Autism, has moved to Clearwater Beach and is also working, living with roommates and thriving!” Ms. Rivera is one of over 300 families who have worked to secure permanent housing through the Hope Center model. Her message symbolizes the spirit of Thanksgiving – to give thanks and share with others!  On behalf of the New Castle County Hope Center, Happy Thanksgiving!
