“Everything hit me all at once. I was shell-shocked. I didn’t know where to begin or what to do.”
These are just a few of Jeannie’s thoughts when her husband Joel died by suicide.
Their son Logan was five and just starting kindergarten. “How am I going to juggle grieving and take care of all the bills and be on my own with my son?” remembers Jeannie. “We were living paycheck to paycheck, and I thought, if I don’t have a house, where do we go?”
Fortunately, Jeannie was made aware of the Kinzler Foundation. The Kinzler Foundation helped Jeannie with her rent and utility bills until she could stabilize her financial situation.
“The Kinzler Foundation gave me peace of mind that we’d be okay,” she said. “The Kinzler Foundation help ended up being so much more than financial. They helped give me a support group of other young moms facing a similar situation, which helped me navigate all the drama and grief that follows an unexpected loss.”
