The AIRS | EHM | City Steps Client Corner is the space we dedicate in this newsletter to highlight clients succeeding in our programming. We ask the same three questions each month to profile their journey with us. This month, we profile Kenyatta in our Adult Permanent Housing program.
1. What brought you to AIRS?
I first learned of AIRS when I was in the 11th grade. I was put out of my home at age 18 and didn’t have anywhere to go. I stayed with various friends and family until one day my school counselor told me about AIRS. I initially moved into Restoration Gardens but transitioned to the Adult Housing Program and I've been here ever since.
2. How has AIRS affected your life?
Entering into Restoration Gardens allowed me to have stable housing and remove herself from an unhealthy relationship. I didn’t have to worry about somebody questioning my every move anymore. Over the years I've received a lot support from my case managers, which and I've very grateful for it. I've had had my ups and downs throughout the years, but overall it has been a good experience.
3. What does the future hold for you?
I have a nine month old son and right now my priority is being a good mom. Eventually, I want to go back to school for nursing.
