This is our story of restoring hope and faith for single moms in need...
Abigail's Place formed in January of 2016 after founder Shereen Sampson realized there was a tremendous need for emergency housing support for displaced single mothers in Fort Bend County. Our mission is to serve single mothers in Fort Bend County who are facing episodic homelessness, which means that circumstances beyond their control have left them without a place to live. These circumstances can include the loss of a job, an illness, losing a family member who was the breadwinner or fleeing domestic violence.
Homelessness can be hidden in several ways. The family may be temporarily living with family or friends, using the last of their savings living in a hotel, or they may be living out of their car. This transient lifestyle brings with it emotional and physical distress, and children, faced with uncertainty and loss, often begin to do poorly in school and suffer social isolation.
