Success Story

"When I arrived at The Shelter, I was very afraid. My children felt the same. As time passed, this disappeared.

The kids began to love living in the shelter. Here they started to smile and I began to be myself again.

Here, I found my first job. I didn't have a car and I bought my first car and opened my own bank account. The children started to socialize more.

I came with nothing and I am leaving with a great job, a new car and the biggest thing for me  - a huge new family I will miss so much."
