“Thanks for making this photo possible. I have a place to call home because of your dedication.” Wanda, Life Skills Participant

Wanda came to the Life Skills Center two years ago. She was homeless, unemployed and exhausted. Working with Life Skills staff and a coach, Wanda found employment with two local companies. But she was still homeless.

With help from a few local charities and using her own funds, Wanda was able to stay in a local hotel for a short time. Eventually, she secured housing through HABcore and was about to move in when a bureaucratic roadblock prevented her from doing so.

The staff at Life Skills and Wanda worked together to address the issue, and after reapplying, she was finally approved. As of December 1st, Wanda has her own apartment to call home!

Thank you Wanda, for sharing your story with us.

Because of your kindness and compassion, Lunch Break’s Life Skills program was able to provide Wanda with the support she needed to get back on her feet.

With your support, Lunch Break will be able to continue to offer these critical services to our neighbors who seek a hand up, not a hand out. Please donate today!
