Stephanie* came to live at Room in the Inn a few years ago after experiencing trauma and loss pretty much her entire life. At a young age, she faced abuse and tragically lost a child.

With everything stacked against her, she worked hard to find a job and register for school. Our case manager helped her develop a game plan for moving out and succeeding after she left. She has since moved in with a relative and is now working toward a degree in the medical field. She stopped by to see our staff this week and was so happy and excited for what the future holds!
