Losing a family member is difficult even when everything else is going right. For someone trying to break the cycle of helplessness, it can be the event that knocks you down. But after losing her mother to a prolonged illness, Latesha knew she needed to rise above the challenges in her life and make a change for good.
“It was hard for everybody at first because nobody wants to leave home or expects to come and stay at a shelter. I work and I save as much as I can save because I have to help myself and my kids.”
The support you shared with Union Mission made it possible for Latesha to find help and safety for herself and her children when they had nowhere else to turn. Thank you for making change possible in our community!
