At the beginning of 2020, Dayana Samuels was a single mother of three. She finally felt she had met the love of her life and was working her dream job as a driver and assistant for disabled people who needed help. But when the coronavirus pandemic hit, so did many other life-changing events for Dayana. She was laid off from her job and unable to get work. She was facing eviction. She was now pregnant by the man she thought she loved but had changed into someone else. Soon, she was the one in need of help, and a home.
She, her seven-year-old son, three-year-old daughter and the baby growing inside of her were forced to live in her car and only her oldest daughter was able to stay with family. Eventually, one of her children's teachers realized the critical living situation and suggested Dayana reach out to MUST Ministries.
"I was scared to live in a shelter at eight months pregnant. I didn't know if it would be safer than our car, but it turned out to be the biggest blessing of my life," she said, through smiles and tears.
At eight months pregnant, Dayana moved her family into MUST's Elizabeth Inn and, when the time came, went to the hospital where healthy baby Kayleigh was born. They then moved into a hotel to await permanent housing, with the help of MUST and the Day 1 Families Fund. On June 26, they finally traded their car roof and all of the other roofs they had seen over the past year for the roof of their own apartment in a safe, clean environment. This was now their home.
