Angel Success Story
Angel served in the army for several years until he was honorably discharged. Returning to Central Florida from his time in Afghanistan, he struggled to find work and he was in danger of losing his house. His wife Diane did some research and discovered United Way’s 2-1-1 Information and Assistance helpline. 2-1-1 put her in touch with a case manager and assistance programs in the area. The assistance programs helped cover their mortgage costs and keep the utilities on while Angel and Diane looked for work. Now both employed, their family has stabilized and they are building a secure future. United Way allowed them to keep their house while they got back on their feet and now they look forward to a white picket fence of their own.
