I am from Royal Oak, Michigan but recently moved into a transitional housing program in Pontiac, Michigan. The program I am apart of is an empowerment program which offers transitional housing for homeless women and their children. I now live in a safe, nurturing environment and can stay here for up to two years.
I spend my time working at Kerby's Coney Island and enjoying my son Aiden.
This past year has really been difficult for me. I found myself homeless after leaving a tumultuous relationship. I entered South Oakland Shelter's emergency shelter, determine to beat the odds. I worked hard with the case managers to achieve the goals that were set before me, and I did! I was able to find housing for myself and my son through Lighthouse. I am no longer homeless, and now I'm working to re-establish myself and get back on my feet.
My career goal is to enroll in a Nursing Assistant program and ultimately become a Nursing Assistant. I want to become self-sufficient, and last but definitely not least...own my own home!
My happiest and proudest moment was when I gave birth to Aiden. One of my wildest dreams is to travel to Italy.
I'm raising money for basic needs.
Be the first to donate to Ashanti this month!
I'm raising money for furniture so I can have guests over.
I'm raising money for household items (bed, recliner, microwave oven, and cooking utensils) so I can live independently.
