Anna and her mother came to the Pacific Northwest only to discover that their housing plans had fallen through. While they received support from their church congregation, they were unable to get housing.
At The Sophia Way, Anna was able to get a place in our Night Shelter Program and we helped her mother rent an apartment through our rental assistance program. Anna worked at a grocery store, saved money for a place of her own, and enrolled at a community college.
Last week she was thrilled to sign the lease on her apartment! She plans to continue her education with the aim of getting a job as an electrical engineer!
