What has been your biggest success?
Something clicked because I could concentrate on what I needed to do for myself and my kids. I was away from the abuse and the negative behavior; therefore, I was able to focus on my overall goal, which is to be housed, not just housed, but to have a safe place to call home. Finding stable housing is something that I am proud about. I’m excited to fall asleep in a bed that I own, knowing I did this for me, and I did this for my babies. I’m going to be able to sleep through the night, knowing we are going to be okay and that is my biggest success.
What would you say to the P4H staff and board of directors?
Thank you for the well mapped out plan! This program is one that is successful, I have been in so many different programs in my life and none of them have shown me the support that you have. Your program is well thought out and you have thought about the barriers that we, as homeless people, go through. Thank you for walking in our shoes and listening without judgment.
What is next for you?
I am moving into an apartment this week, going to college for cosmetology, and going to therapy to work on myself so that I can be the best mom I can be for my children. I don’t want my children to go through the same hardships that I did growing up. For them I am working hard to run a household filled with love, respect and God. from there, the possibilities are endless.
