Transforming Lives 2019
As a single father, George struggled to find balance between maintaining his career and watching his young children. With no one to watch his children, George lost his job as a chef and eventually lost his housing. After courageously removing herself from an abusive relationship while pregnant, Tiahna and her children were forced to bounce from family member’s homes until all her options had been exhausted. Following being put out by her landlord, Juanita was able to stay with her mother temporarily, however the
one bedroom apartment was too small to house Juanita and her children. Waynenetta found herself living out of her car for four days following the loss of her housing. While living in her car, she had to leave her children with family members.
Through your support of Family Promise® NNCC, you transformed their lives! George is now a vegan chef at the Newark Natural Foods Co-op. Tiahna found an apartment and a job directly across the street from one another. Juanita secured an apartment large enough to house all her children. Waynenetta finished school, received her medical assistant certification and obtained a security license.
