Connor family reunited with help from their Family Partner

Connor family reunited with help from their Family Partner

The Connor family finally secured employment and an apartment – things were working in their favor. Until disaster struck with a sewage leak in their apartment, damaging their furniture and belongings. Their landlord and DSS offered little help and they were left to deal with cleaning and replacing needed items. They were temporarily displaced and the children were living with family members as there was no furniture in their rooms.


The Family Partners at Thompson stepped in to advocate and help connect the family with local resources. A referral to Beds for Kids was initially rejected as the family received a previous referral. The Family Partner stepped in to request an exception due to their unusual circumstances. Beds for Kids approved the exception and the family received replacement furniture. The Connors are excited to be reunited and all living under the same roof again.


‘Having someone who cared about what we were going through and knew where to get help was so reassuring.’ ~ Mrs. Connor
