Rarely is a dad faced with the kind of obstacles that met Westchester’s Carlos—and yet he overcame them and emerged in a better place. In a matter of months, his wife left him and his two daughters in serious debt and facing eviction. After a successful encounter with The Bridge Fund, Carlos was given an interest-free loan that secured a home for his family. Sadly, soon after his 6-year old daughter, Aniya, was diagnosed with Juvenile Arthritis. The Bridge Fund was able to help again, connecting Carlos with agencies that could provide specific assistance to Aniya. The family is now adjusting and thrilled to be in their new home surrounded by caring neighbors.
