A woman is currently in a transitional housing program and has an opportunity to become a Registered Nurse, enabling her and her family to escape homelessness and obtain a higher quality of life. The family sought help after experiencing a whirlwind of setbacks that crippled what was previously a strong financial foundation. They lost their primary source of income and health insurance when her husband was laid off, having been on dialysis for years for kidney failure. Her mother, an additional source of income, passed away. The woman has worked as a Licensed Vocational Nurse (LVN). She was also attending school to become a Registered Nurse (RN). She is now the sole provider for her family. Small Angels paid for tuition to complete her RN work and for the additional expenses needed to secure employment immediately as an LVN, thus helping her attain a renewed sense of dignity and help the family gain self-sufficiency.
