Faces of The Fellowship: Dasha

The apartment that 3-year-old Dasha shares with her parents and alcoholic grandmother is in a state of disrepair. The wallpaper is peeling off the walls and no repairs have been made in years. Dasha’s mother has had a difficult time finding work after her maternal leave. Dasha’s father is a guard at a children’s hospital even though a recent injury makes it difficult for him to work. He cannot afford to quit, despite the pain, until he officially receives disability status, and he is in the lengthy process of filing for that now. The financial issues create tension in the home, and Dasha can feel it. She has become withdrawn and quiet. The Fellowship is trying to help by subsidizing her participation in an early childhood program, where she can meet other children and take a break from the difficulties at home.A Fellowship food card provides Dasha the healthy foods her parents wouldn’t be able to afford on their own. We also recently bought Dasha a bed, allowing her to finally move out of the crib she’s slept in since birth. While everything around her is tense and unstable, The Fellowship is finally giving this sweet young girl a reason to smile.
