Ambition and Assistance


Young woman seeking self-sufficiency

When a 23 year old woman recently returned to her home town, Gainesville, Florida, she came to St. Francis House for temporary shelter. Within days a local restaurant hired her to work for them.

Another job opportunity came soon. Meanwhile, she has signed up for housing with the Alachua County Housing Authority.

Considering her enthusiasm to establish self-sufficiency, indications are that she may leave shelter, soon.
