Shanjula and her family have braved homelessness but have never given up hope to lead lives they are proud of and can thrive in. After getting on her feet at Buckner Family Pathways, earning a college degree, and securing a job in education, we felt so fortunate to help provide a new start for this wonderful mom and her daughter and son.
Trista is a veteran who was living in a home that was not fit to raise her girls. Rebuilding Together Greater Dallas rebuilt the home, which had no working plumbing, from the ground up. DwD provided the interiors. Trista has been promoted at work and enjoys celebrating life at home with her family.
Rosze had just completed writing a book about her journey when she and her 2 young daughters moved back in to their apartment after DwD turned their house into a home. Life is good for them now. Rosze has considered moving to a larger apartment, but has decided to stay where she is and save up to buy a house.
Shemika and her two little boys have come such a long way from sleeping in her car and weathering homelessness. While going through the program at Interfaith Housing Coalition, she saved $13,000 and moved into a house with her children upon graduating. Since moving there in 2014, Shemika has excelled at her job and is proud to be the first person in her family to provide a home for her family.
This home interior was designed for a very young mother and her two little girls. After completing the program at Promise House, this mom has set out to become self sufficient and provide a home for her daughters.
Thommie and her 2 sons had their own apartment after going through the program at one of our partner agencies in Atlanta. They were living there, but not thriving – that is until DwD came in and made over their apartment. Since then, the oldest son has had many play dates – his first ever. And speaking of firsts, after Thommie received a big promotion and raise at her job, she was able to take the boys to the beach on their very first vacation.
