Turning Things Around
by Aleisha Wilhite, Community Case Manager
Sandra came to GSH in desperate need of housing. She is a young single mother whose children receive limited social security disability income. She was unable to find a landlord who would accept her housing voucher.
Thankfully, Sandra was referred to us and GSH was able to accept her voucher. Now that she is in stable housing and not being forced to move around, she is back in school, working to obtain her GED. She has been working closely with her case manager on her goals, which besides the GED, includes paying off her debt, raising her credit score and attending radiology school.
Sandra is excited that she is turning things around and will soon be better off financially. She wants to be able to provide for her family, and is looking forward to being self sufficient within the next few years.
