If you’ve seen the Netflix series “Maid,” you’d be familiar with Life Skills participant Christina’s story. This mother of three children, who once ran a thriving cleaning business in Ohio, sought help from Family Promise and The Life Skills program after her circumstances took a 180 degree turn. With assistance from Family Promise, Christina, then homeless and living in her broken-down Volkswagen, found temporary shelter and was offered family services to help her regain her footing. Now, after guidance from Life Skills coach Susan and with reliable transportation donated by Executive Manager Joe Wajda and the team at World Jeep Subaru, Christina has a fresh start and an LLC for a new cleaning business Cleaning It Up.
