Transitioning During Crisis

One of our services that tugs the most at my heart is assisting families who are in crisis. This happens most often when a parent or relative has passed away, or is undergoing major health challenges and has to move into a different housing solution. It also often happens that the family members are no longer in the area and/or don’t have the luxury of taking extended leave to sort out what needs to be done with the house and all its belongings, which is when we step in to help.

Regardless of the reason for the change, the emotional toll it can take is vast. Sometimes the home needs to be completely cleared out. Sometimes it needs to be tidied up to prepare for sale. Other times it simply needs to be sorted through so that cherished pieces can be transferred to the new living situation or family members.

Time is of the essence, and it can feel more than a bit overwhelming. Whatever the scenario, CMFTO and our vetted resources can take care of any need that may arise.

We recently have been referred to three such clients who were unsure of where to begin as they navigated the emotional waters of family change. We received this email as a result of our efforts, and we were touched by its message.

We love what we do and are grateful to be able to assist others as they transition through the changes in their lives, as we strive to make it just a little bit easier.

Dear Claudia,

I just wanted to thank you for the great job you did clearing out my mom’s house. You were able to work quickly and get all the necessary people in to get the job done. I really appreciate your suggestions and flexibility while being clear on the cost. The realtor was impressed with how clean the house was when you were done.

I’d be happy to talk to anyone thinking of using you in the future.
