The Story of Misty Frazier
After becoming homeless Misty Frazier applied for emergency services for her and her son at the Virginia Williams Family Resource Center, the central intake office in the District of Columbia for all families with children seeking emergency shelter and housing. Ms. Frazier was referred to one of the Coalition’s Housing Employment Specialist who helped her set-up interviews to find a job. She was hired at Denny’s Restaurant. As a result of becoming employed Ms. Frazier became eligible for Rapid Re-housing. This program helps individuals obtain housing and provides them with a short-term housing subsidy. Misty says that her life is much better, more peaceful now that she is employed and stably housed
