homeless people with families. “While at the Center, I learned money

with drugs, jobless, stressed, and homeless,” states Shanquilla Odom, former

life around and to make a stable home for me and my daughter. I now have hopes
and dreams. I can imagine having my own business someday, living in my own
home, sending my daughter to college, maybe even marriage,”

Center provide housing for homeless families and offers support services to
assist them as they transition from homelessness to self-sufficiency. From
