After waiting 5 months to get in to the shelter this single mother of a teenage son gained employment at the Space & Rocket Center after being unemployed for 5 years. We helped her with transportation, case management and food assistance and bought her first set of uniforms and shoes. Within 2 months she was promoted to supervisor, while at the shelter she was able to pay off tickets and fines gain her license and purchase a car. After 2 years at the shelter she was able to move into a rental property.
