SEPTEMBER'S SUCCESS STORY:
KC and her husband had been in our program for 15 months. KC worked at a local fast food restaurant and her husband was a laborer. ANEW Living provided a safe clean affordable living environment allowing them to focus on saving money and improving their job skills. 3 months ago KC was promoted to manager. Staying at ANEW Living afforded them the opportunity to focus on saving enough money for move out and up cost and on 9/24/16 they celebrated moving into their own house!
