An elementary school girl is living with her mother and special needs brother in a transitional housing program through a relief agency. The mom and the siblings were homeless following a situation of abuse by the father followed by neglect and family abandonment. The abuse directed at the girl was severe enough to require surgery, resulting in her having self-esteem and social integration challenges. Her elementary school was sponsoring an educational trip to Washington D.C. and New York. Small Angels helped pay for her to go on the school trip to boost her self-esteem and self-confidence. The educational trip will facilitate her development of social skills and allow her to build more friendships.
