Chanell began struggling to find housing for her and her daughter in December 2016. She stayed with friends and family but also sometimes stayed in her car. She was determined to find housing no matter how much stress she was under or how much disappointment she faced. When she worked with a YWCA St. Paul Rapid Re-Housing Case Manager, she was able to move beyond crisis and into stability. Chanell welcomed her second child and completed her GED with the comfort and security of her own home.
