Leaving a bad experience in another city behind, Priscilla and her three young children came to Boston for their fresh start. Unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances, Priscilla’s family found themselves homeless. Shortly after being referred to Heading Home, Priscilla and her family were swiftly placed into one of our transitional housing units.

Our case manager addressed the family’s immediate needs, including child care, the children’s access to school and transportation. Through this process, we recognized Priscilla’s potential and encouraged her to enroll in the Heading Home Partnership. As a result of several positive steps in her work, skills and savings, Priscilla recently secured permanent housing for her family in Roxbury.

She is currently pursuing a nursing degree from Lincoln Technical Institute and is on-track to graduate next semester. In the meantime, she has secured full-time employment as an advocate for homeless families with disabled children. As someone who never thought she would be without a home, she has embraced – and accelerated with – the support Heading Home has provided to get back on track.
