In April, nineteen homeless families came to Community Services seeking help with housing.
One request came from a husband and wife who are in the fourth month of a high-risk pregnancy. They have been married four years and have had seven miscarriages.
They are long-term residents of Clark County and have been on the waiting list for housing assistance since he was laid off from his job as a security guard in December. They lost their apartment because they could not afford the rent and separate utility bills.
The couple have found a more affordable apartment that includes utilities. Although he draws unemployment, it is not enough for the required down payment and first month's rent.
