Last month we were devastated to learn of the passing of our client, Tyesha Henry. She was just 26 years old and excited to be getting a fresh new start for herself and her children. She lit up every room she walked into, and was often found supporting other clients, ensuring they had what they needed and a shoulder to lean on. She was determined to make a better life for her family, balancing a job while going to school. She had recently completed her Medical Assistant Certificate, with a 3.8 GPA. She did everything she was supposed to do but tragically still lost her life.
We will remember Tyesha for her great strength, and her ability to move forward for herself and her children, despite the obstacles she encountered along the way. We continue our work in her memory and in the hope that no more survivors loose their lives. We thank our staff and the MSP Board of Directors for their support of her family during these very difficult times.
