When Venese (3 small children) moved into one of our apartments at The Shepherd’s Way Family Shelter, she came with a number of serious barriers for independence. One child had a serious medical condition. She held less than part-time employment, no High School Diploma and was without childcare.
While in our program, Venese was able to increase to fulltime employment as soon as childcare services were provided. Her son’s medical conditions were better managed after the family stabilized in a safe shelter environment. She started receiving GED classes to continue education in a vocational career as a manager. As a result, Venese was able to save money to move to back to independence. Six months later, she is still stable and has HOPE.
