Picture this - a family of six - mother, father and 4 sons coming together to celebrate Thanksgiving. But two days before the holiday, at a time when dad cooked his most delicious meals, dad (my husband) suddenly drops dead from a heart attack. My sons and I muddled through the thickness of grief, trying to move forward. We were no longer able to afford housing. I learned about CPAH and I attended an information session. For the first time in a very long time, I felt hope. My CPAH experience is and will always be the most amazing and important turning point in my family’s journey. Today, two and a half years after learning about CPAH, we continue to cope with our loss, but the waters are calm. CPAH changed our lives and offered the opportunity to rebuild and achieve stability.
