Thanks are due to Susan herself, to her LCS Case Manager, and to everyone who helped make her move into her new, furnished home possible, including One Hundred Good Women, our volunteer Move-Out team, and all of our donors and supporters.
Following the death of her husband, Susan found herself on the streets in Wichita, KS. She came to us at an extremely difficult time in her life. Furthermore, she was deep in debt. Over the course of her time at the shelter, she diligently worked to recover in every way, including financially. She is now debt-free. We are so proud of her!
And because she paid off her debts, she was able to move out of the shelter and into an apartment — the first apartment, in fact, in which she has lived all on her own. She promptly went out and adopted an adorable cat, Chloe, from the Lawrence Humane Society! Susan is just thrilled. What really motivated her to get her affairs in order so she could live independently, she says, is that she so very much wanted to have her grandchildren come stay with her and to make cookies for them. Now she can, and will.
