"Because of my PTSD, I withdraw and push people away. And one time my mentor told me, 'You know, Eva, when you push the bad, you push the good,' and that hit me. I really appreciate her from the bottom of my heart. People like her, volunteering their time and helping us, I think that's marvelous. And I'm a living testimony of how it works!"

Eva is a disabled military veteran. She was living comfortably as an empty-nester when she learned that her daughter was in crisis and she would need to step in and take custody of her infant grandson.

Suddenly, Eva was a full-time grandparent and needed many resources. She found Britepaths and received food, diapers and a stellar support system to get her started. She has worked with a Financial Mentor so she can budget for her new reality. Eva and her grandson are now doing very well because our community came together to lift them up.

"Without organizations like Britepaths, people like myself would just be hopeless," Eva says.

Unfortunately, 1 out of 16 people in the Fairfax County area are in a similar situation to Eva’s. The Britepaths team is working around the clock to provide hope and help these families Thrive...but we can’t do it alone.

Now is the Time to Lift Up Our Neighbors to Thrive. Your generous gift on Giving Tuesday will provide vital supports so that thousands of families like Eva’s can thrive — academically, physically and emotionally.

On behalf of the thousands of neighbors like Eva who come to us for help, thank you for your support!
