A Life Transformed

LaJuana Banner 2One night LaJuana found herself alone and drinking on a park bench.

Her drinking was so out of control that no one could or wanted to live with her anymore. She couldn’t hold down a job. She had been arrested multiple times for driving under the influence. With only a suitcase beside her containing everything she now owned, LaJuana knew that she needed help.

When you make a year-end gift to N Street Village, you will be there for women like LaJuana, women who find themselves without a place to sleep and in need of immediate help and long-term hope. Donate before midnight today and your tax-deductible gift will be matched up to $10,000.

The following day, LaJuana entered the doors of our women’s day center where she was welcomed by a warm and caring community. She moved into our night shelter, no longer having to worry about finding a place to sleep each night or a place for her belongings. She began working with staff on her personal goals, which were to stay sober and find a job. She devoted herself to improving her overall health – participating in fitness, spirituality, and art classes – all while attending Alcohol Anonymous meetings regularly.

Today, LaJuana lives in one of our Permanent Supportive Housing apartments. She continues to maintain her sobriety. After successfully completing a job readiness program, she is now working again full-time as a security guard. Her job provides her benefits and a 401(k) plan.

Because of YOU, Lajuana was able to find recovery from addiction and to transform her life.

Your year-end gift to N Street Village will transform lives like LaJuana’s. You will stand with woman who have lost everything – everything but hope – who just need a chance.

Happy New Year,

Schroeder Stribling
Executive Director
