MEDFORD, Ore. -- The community came together to help get families back on their feet. A dozen families working with the Maslow Project were chosen to move into a new affordable housing complex called Newbridge Place in Medford. Pickers Paradise, Garrison's Home, Fred Meyer, and Tom's Bronco Parts donated brand furniture, home goods, time, and space to help get these families moved in.

The road to stable housing has been bumpy for Nancy Buenrostro and her familiy.

"We were bouncing off couches and living with my 22-year-old daughter so this is quite a miracle and a blessing all on its own," Buenrostro added.

The road got a whole lot smoother Friday afternoon. Thanks to the Maslow Project and the Jackson County Housing Authority, her family has their own two-bedroom home to go to.

"We've been blessed with this amazing miracle," Buenrostro said. "Because for our family it is an amazing miracle."

She's just one of 12 formerly homeless families that now have places to call their own.

"Up until now, we've really just been surviving," said Caitlin Kelly about her family. "For me as a mom that's the biggest blessing. Just seeing my kids really decompress and let that stress go. All that's happened in the last six months, that doesn't have to be what they think about all the time now. They can think about the future."

Thanks to the local businesses and companies listed above, the apartments came fully furnished.

"We literally had nothing but our clothes and some pictures that I had stored at my daughter's," Buenrostro added.

The Maslow Project will have offices on-site available for case management to further help these families get back on their feet and put homelessness behind them forever.

"You know, circumstances happen and it changs things. We're really grateful that we got this. This is going to help us change things back around. It's a breath of fresh air," Buenrostro said.

"It's such a relief," Kelly added. "And it's turned out to be even better than I imagined. It's a dream come true."
