True story. When Michele was homeless, today seemed unimaginable.
Some of her friends think she’s the smartest person they know. Her niece just finds her hilarious. Her social worker thinks of Michele each time she passes a hardware store. She’s that kind of memorable.
You see, Michele really was homeless. But she was never hopeless.
She came into the YWCA’s housing program. She learned about and joined the YWCA’s pre-employment program supporting women for whom work is complicated by a history of violence. Michele took it all in stride.
In fact, she took it all in. She took in the stability that housing provides. She took in the lessons that the classroom provides. And she took in the support she needed, when she needed it most.
Four months ago, she got a job at a hardware store. Last month, she moved into her own place. Today, she tells her niece to never give up hope.
Since 1874, YWCA has kept the hope alive. We know that women like Michele find themselves at turning points and we’re honoured to be there when we’re needed.
And we also know that it wasn’t us. It was her. It was always her.
Help us be there for her. Donate this holiday season to your YWCA Halifax.
