What does ASOH Mean to You?

When I received ASOH…

I was able to finally have one of the best night’s sleep I have probably ever had in my entire life. Being able to be surrounded by colors that brought me peace, items that helped me cultivate better daily routines, and furniture that allowed me to work on my dreams felt like for the first time in my life I wasn’t in survival mode. I am forever grateful.

– Sierra, Home Created in 2022

Oh wow!!

It has meant sooo much to me. I can’t believe this is my home now. My son was only a couple weeks old, when ASOH came so I was still in a very sleep deprived state. LOL. And I was in a state of shock. Now that time has passed I’m in such a good place emotionally. Every time I sit on the couch or lay in my bed I’m in a state of awe. Just pure joy. I feel so cared for by ASOH. I get so emotional about it like every other day because I just can’t believe it. I feel relaxed. It means so much to me to have received my home creation. I can’t wait till my son is a little bit older so that we can pay it forward. I am so grateful and appreciative.

– Kristie, Home Created in 2022

I still talk about it to this day…

2 years later and I still remember all the love I received that day!!

– Johna, Home Created in 2020

I am still at the same place…

I am still in school and have been getting super great grades!

– Nadine, Home Created in 2021

It was the absolute best…

Me and my family appreciated it so much. Forever thankful.

– Diana, Home Created in 2021

Ever since I was a child…

I always dreamed of a home. I wanted a place that I could call mine. A place filled with peace and love. I was finally able to secure a place for my daughter and I to live on our own when I was 25 years old. I was really happy because my dream was finally becoming a reality. When we moved into the house we slept on an air mattress and eat on the floor. Receiving assistance with my new home was very significant and impactful to me. It meant that there were people out there who support me in my dreams. People who want to see me thrive and who know that I deserve a home.

– Maria, Home Created in 2022

It inspires me every day…

to wanna be more successful. I’m so grateful for ASOH. They made my life so easy by not having to stress and feel sad because I couldn’t afford to make my first home an actual home where my kids would have their own bedding and dressers. Thank you ASOH again!

– Crystal, Home Created in 2020

It means the world to me…

I’m very appreciative and grateful.

– Calah, Home Created in 2022

It was the best thing I’ve ever experienced.

– Yerimar, Home Created in 2022

It meant so much…

coming from foster care and not having furniture and being pregnant with my youngest at the time. I wasn’t sure how I would do anything. When I found out about A Sense of Home they supported me multiple times with help!

– Tiffany, Home Created in 2017

As a former foster youth…

I never had stability. I grew up in broken homes, which ruined my self esteem and confidence. I aimlessly was living a life with no purpose. To be honest, I did not care about my life then. When ASOH granted a home creation for my son and me, I was in disbelief. I was thinking to myself what did I do to deserve this blessing. As a single mother, all I desire is for my son to live a fruitful life. I want him to prosper and navigate his potential to the right path. This is our first home and ASOH made us feel at home for the first time. It is one of my favorite memories I cherish.

– Julia, Home Created in 2019

It was a beautiful experience…

the amount of thankfulness I have… I can’t even express.

– Glynnisha, Home Created in 2017

It meant everything to me…

It meant stability, growth, foundation, a beginning, a new start, a real true sense of home.

– Roberta, Home Created in 2019

Lots of love and hope and positivity….

for both me and my son.
– Lexly, Home Created in 2018

2017 was the most difficult year for me.

I had moved out of transitional housing, couch surfing with my son, and was in my last year of my undergrad. All I ever wanted was stability and support so that I can thrive with my son. When I was able to secure housing, ASOH stepped into our lives by providing a beautiful home so I didn’t have to worry anymore and focus solely on school. ASOH helped me heal and gave me the strength to focus on what mattered. I graduated with my bachelor’s degree in 2019. I am now pursuing my master’s degree in higher education.

– Junely, Home Created in 2017

It meant the world to me…

that ASOH helped me create a place to call home and to have my own bubble of love and safety every time my daughter and I come home.

– Elizabeth, Home Created in 2019

It meant security…

freedom, a place to be at peace of mind.

– Julie, Home Created in 2019

It meant the world to me.

It is very difficult with no support system. Me and my kids enjoyed the support from ASOH. Thank you so much!

– Susana, Home Created in 2020

It meant I finally have a home.

– Fatima, Home Created in 2022

It means the world…

because me and my son had nothing. We were given a bed, a couch and things that made us feel at home, they were all so kind and caring. We were thankful beyond words.

– ASOH Recipient, Home Created in 2019

Moving into my first apartment…

was a monumental moment in my young adulthood, I was provided with essentials and the necessary items needed in my first apartment. A lot of the things such as big furniture pieces would’ve taken a very long time to obtain without the support of ASOH. ASOH supported me during a huge and scary transition.

– America, Home Created in 2018

It meant that I was living out my dream.

It was like having a family be there for me for a milestone.

– Miani, Home Created in 2017

Having a home created for me and my girls…

was just the blessing we needed at a hard time in our lives.

– ASOH Recipient, Home Created in 2019

It meant the world to me…

because I’ve never just had a place to call home without bouncing place to place.

– Destiny, Home Created in 2017

Having support from ASOH when I moved in was a dream come true.

I never thought something like that would happen for me and it felt unreal. It made me feel stable, supported, and my future felt so much more bright. ASOH’s support played (and still plays) a huge part in my success and stability. It even has affected my family positively, as ASOH created my sister’s home as well.

– Chyenne, Home Created in 2018

I felt a sense of belonging and community.

I was grateful and blessed to have tremendous support. It relieved anxiety and stress I initially felt about my living situation. Most importantly I felt at home.

and the opportunity to be able to receive such a blessing of a full home creation.

Getting my new place…

and having ASOH help me furnish it meant everything to me my house feels like a home!

– Lillian, Home Created in 2022

As a former foster youth…

I was very anxious about if I would be able to survive and live in LA post graduating college. I was able to do so and having the support from ASOH made my 1st LA apartment feel safe, and feel like a home that I could settle in for a long time period rather than a temporary period as before.

– Teaira, Home Created in 2019

Finally having my own space.

and being able to receive support from ASOH was very special to me. I remember ASOH provided what may have been simple things to others such as a shower curtain and pots and pans but I was a full time student and working two jobs those house items were one less thing to worry about.

– Lidia, Home Created in 2018

A dream come true.

I am so blessed to have a stable home for my son and me. We are thriving with the grace of god.

Everything!

I love a sense of home. I want to volunteer more.

– Karen, Home Created in 2021

It meant that other people care enough to help us…

former foster youths feel some type of peace and stability. Strangers we have never met have gone above and beyond to help us have some comfort in our lives and it’s amazing because it shows me that kindness is still a thing in our current society.

– Ivette, Home Created in 2019

It meant everything to me.

It was wonderful to receive assistance from such caring people. It started a foundation for myself and my son. It made our first home feel like an actual home.

– Jamie, Home Created in 2022

It meant a lot for me to finally have my own apartment.

ASOH gave me…

a desk, desk chair, dresser, bed frame, and mattress in my first apartment and I still use all of them. I get compliments on them too! When my ceiling busted with black mold and ruined the mattress you gave me a new one and I literally cried because the first mattress you gave me was my first new mattress ever.

– Holdyn, Home Created in 2020

It meant the world to me!

Being in foster care and a single parent I had no one to help me furnish my first apartment or have the ability for it to feel like a safe place for me and my son. I can never forget the look on my son’s face when he looked into his room for the first time.

– Rogelia, Home Created in 2018

It meant so much to me and my son.

I only had one son. Now I have 3. I was struggling and had no help. I grew up in the system and I don’t have family. I was homeless before moving into my apartment. They helped us and we couldn’t thank you enough.

– Sabrina, Home Created in 2019

It meant everything!!!!

To be able to come to our own home. All my life I have couch surfed and slept in hotels. And shelter. I grew up in foster care so I never really had my OWN. Moving in had given me and my daughter an opportunity to feel safe and comfortable.

because it was hard trying to figure out where to get a lot of home items. But they took a lot of pressure off of me that I felt because of school stress and just adjusting to being on my own in a new journey in life as well.

– Bridgette, Home Created in 2017
