Chantelle’s Story

Chantelle, a single mother who lived in a shelter, had not been able to find adequate schooling for her daughter. As a result, her daughter had missed most of the school year. With help from her case worker, Chantelle finally managed to receive subsidized housing, and the permanent address helped her enroll her daughter in the local school.

A grant of $175 from the Fund enabled this family to purchase a school uniform, shoes, school supplies and a backpack - essentials which helped motivate her daughter to attend school with confidence and dignity.
