After surviving a devastating house fire, Margaret and her three young children found themselves living in the homes of a number of friends and family. With all of her income going to finding a new place to call home, Margaret found herself struggling to feed her children. A visit to Long Island Cares offered Margaret the opportunity to secure a large amount of emergency food and supplies during her difficult time. While at our South Shore Service Center, Margaret received important referrals to a number of outside resources, including SNAP, emergency housing, and health insurance. By giving Margaret enough food to feed her children, Long Island Cares has been able to ease the burden of a family trying to get back on their feet.
