June 17, 2017 (El Cajon) - Jerry Navarro, owner of Jerome’s Furniture, personally delivered 60 mattresses to the East County Transitional Living Center (ECTLC), where he was joyfully greeted by dozens of homeless children.
The 30 new queen size mattresses and 30 twin size mattresses donated by Jeromes Furniture will replace existing mattresses that have been worn out over time by ECTLC residents who were once living on the streets, sought shelter at ECTLC, and are now in transition to living a self-sustaining, independent life while participating in the transformational programs at ECTLC.
"We are grateful to Jerry Navarro for providing these former homeless families with a good nights sleep on quality mattresses from Jeromes Furniture," said Harold Brown, CEO of ECTLC "When a family is living on the streets, the parents often don't sleep as they are protecting the family from potential danger. Now these families have shelter, food and a good nights sleep as they transition to a better, independent and productive life."
Since 2009, ECTLC has been changing lives through proven transformational programs that guide homeless, addicted and distraught individuals and families into becoming self-sustaining, productive members of society. No longer dependent on the government, ECTLC graduates become independent, employed, tax-paying citizens
