A New Hope

Jeannie moved to Blount County from Nashville with her two children to escape an abusive husband.  She came to Good Neighbors seeking assistance for a rental deposit to provide a safe home for her family.   She was able to share her difficult history with the coach.  She is working through the trauma of having suffered severe abuse by her parents before moving into the foster system.  Jeannie was able to raise the funds required through Good Neighbors and several other agencies, and also completed a budgeting course offered by Peninsula.
