“You would never think you would be homeless, but things happen. Good people can find themselves in a bad situation. I take a lot of pride in the jewelry and in this place. I am so eternally grateful for this.”
“One of the things I love about Unlocked is that they care about my daughter, not just me. They care about humanity, not just work.”
“I needed more for myself, but beyond that I needed to give my three boys more of what they deserve. I owe every ounce of my strength to them.”
“Learning these new skills has inspired me to be more successful in life, taking me and my kids further.”
“Unlocked has been one of the best things that’s ever happened to me. Before, I felt like I was sitting and wasn’t a participant in life. It gives me hope that my future is brighter and I can participate in life again.”
“It’s so fulfilling for me to have this opportunity, and I’m excited to pay it forward for other women living in hardship.”
"My motivation is definitely my daughter. I want the best life I can possibly give her, so getting housing was a dream come true. The future is bright for myself and my daughter with the help of Unlocked."
"With Unlocked, I feel free. I’m not out on the street struggling, I’ve got a place. That’s what ‘Unlocked’ means: you’re free."
“I found out that I’m more than a survivor; I’m an overcomer. And because I overcame, I’m able to help other people overcome.”
