“I am truly grateful and forever appreciative of Preshuis Williams and her wonderful organization, Rahab Hope. My baby and I have faced the worst situation no family should go through especially during this pandemic and winter approaching. Preshuis Williams not only explained the process carefully and thoroughly to me, but she made sure to communicate and walk me through the process from start to finish. I was treated with such respect and non-judgment about my situation from Preshuis. This is truly an inspiring organization and I hope to give back the way I was given the much-needed resources to get myself together. Again, thank you, thank you, too many thank you's to write!! I will always speak highly of this organization and Preshuis Williams to everyone that asks me how I was able to get on my feet so fast. Without this organization and what it stands for I honestly don't know where I would've been. So thank you for making my holidays much more better for myself and my baby during this pandemic.”
"Rahab's Hope helped at the most devastating point in my life. My son died by suicide and I was unable to work. I only got a very small disability check. I was able to take time off of work to grieve because Rahab's Hope helped me with rent. I was able to get grief counseling and go to grief groups because I had time off of work and could deal with the death of my son."

"I was in a situation where if Rahab's Hope would not have helped me with rent money I could not get the chance to restart my life. It was a ray of hope to get this help and a step in making me move forward in life and a very big burden taken away. It was truly a blessing."

"Rahab's Hope helped me from getting evicted. I am a single mother with a 1 year old daughter. I am trying to adapt to new mommy life and trying to uphold new responsibilities. I ran into a situation where I needed assistance. I called several places and started to get discouraged. I was then provided Rahab's Hope contact information. What I loved most is that I was really dealing with a desperate situation and needed help right away. Rahab's Hope stepped right in and made this a priority. Rahab's Hope saved me and my baby from getting evicted. Many many thanks and much appreciation."
