Success Story: Shanika

Homeless and unemployed, Shanika was determined to build a new life for herself and her three children. Setting her sights on the future, she enrolled in YWCA St. Paul’s Transitional Housing Program (THP), where she found a new home and the support she needed to set and achieve ambitious goals.

No longer worrying where her family would sleep each night, Shanika began focusing on her education. With support from her case manager, she enrolled in a medical assistant program at Century College, and learned to successfully juggle attending classes with both parenting and working.

Shanika recently moved into an apartment in the community and hopes to continue on in school to become a registered nurse. “If you are taught the right skills…anything is possible,” she says. “The YWCA helped me put my goals in perspective and I’m so grateful for that.”

“The YWCA helped me put my goals in perspective.”
