Marachelle fell into homelessness after a fallout with her family. For over a year, she survived jumping from shelter to shelter. With severe health conditions and a weak respiratory system, she found herself at Providence St. Joseph's Hospital, who connected Marachelle to Ascencia.
Geoffrey's roommate moved out, leaving him unable to afford his apartment alone on a VONS clerk's salary. In need of help, his sister, Marachelle, connected him to Ascencia and both became residents of Ascencia's emergency shelter.
On #GivingTuesday, Marachelle and Geoffrey moved into an apartment of their own. Merry Christmas, Marachelle and Geoffrey!
