Client Impact Story: Kristina
Back-to-school is a stressful time for any family but imagine not being able to provide even a desk, kitchen table or bed for your children? Unfortunately, this was a situation that Kristina* had been in. As a victim of domestic abuse, Kristina was looking to re-establish herself in the west end of the Greater Toronto Area and felt immense pressure with her son’s first day of school on the immediate horizon.
After coming to Furniture Bank from a shelter agency, Kristina and her family were able to fully furnish their apartment with beds, a dining table, and a television. No longer were they forced to eat and sleep on the floor.
Today, Kristina’s son is thriving in his new school, and her daughter is excitedly anticipating her first day.
