She is a thirty-two-year-old, single mother of three in Gwinnett County. She was referred to us by our partners, Rainbow Village, upon graduating from their program.
Bianca is a single mother of three children.
Bianca has always wanted to graduate from college. It had been a dream of hers for fourteen years. After several years of moving her girls from shelter to shelter, she was accepted into the Rainbow Village transitional housing program. She was able to get back on her feet there, but her dream of attending college was put on hold until she was connected with H.O.P.E., Inc. As she graduated from the Rainbow Village program and moved into her new apartment, she knew she would still need help if she planned to enroll back in college. That’s where H.O.P.E, Inc. came in.
H.O.P.E. Inc. agreed to assist Bianca with $250 a month in rent assistance and $75 in childcare assistance. With the program’s help, she was able to get counseling to help balance anxieties around single parenting, and financial training to maintain her budget. All of the support helped her tremendously, and she achieved her goal of obtaining her first college degree in May 2019.
She owes it all to H.O.P.E. Inc.
