On any given day there are people in our community who need assistance as the result of personal decisions or outside influences. In many cases family and friends are the answer to their needs. In other cases short-term assistance can serve to address the need for food, shelter and clothing brought on by poor personal decisions, an abusive relationship or a sudden catastrophic event like a flood. Hard Life is the story of three people who are on a journey of recovery.
In the end, this is a story of ourselves. We do not know when we may be the next person in need. As a society we’ve come to accept the everyday nature of those experiencing hunger, who are in need of emergency shelter, or who have lost everything due to a natural disaster. Experiencing these stories serves to remind us of the value and need of the social services in our community.
