My 18-year-old has applied for college to take up business management and my other 4 kids are doing extremely well in school, working hard, involved with sports and staying busy challenging themselves the best way they can.
From this point forward, my biggest goal in life is to get off all assistance. I want to be on my own and support myself and my kids. If I had one thing to say to [Partners for Housing], I would say that I really appreciate you and the things you have done for me. If it wasn’t for you I wouldn’t be where I am today.
You understood the emotional barrier and stress that came with being homeless. Thank you for accepting me for who I am and seeing the best in me. You saw strengths in me that I didn’t see. It was hard every single day, and I always wanted to give up, but the staff at Partners never let me. You saw my traits for success and gave me the resources to achieve success. All I can say is thank you!
