L. Williams was a single mother of two when she married her husband. Not soon after, the relationship became violent. One night L was beaten by her husband and left her for dead. The neighbors overheard the commotion and peeped into the home after the husband left and sought help for L. She was hospitalized for 5 days and had surgery on her left eye during this stay.
Upon leaving the hospital, one of her college professors at Everest University led her to Safehouse for Domestic Violence Shelter. Safehouse referred Ms. Williams into Transitional Housing. While in the Transitional Housing program, the Case Manager assisted her with establishing a bank account and encouraged her to save money. She began utilizing the tools the Case Manager provided while she continued to attend college at Everest University.
L. Williams later graduated with an Associate of Science degree in Business Management. After graduation, her counselor at Everest referred her to a job and she has been working since that time. She is currently working two jobs while being a full time mother and has started a cleaning company named “Anointed Hands Cleaning Service”.
With the help of her church, L. is in the process of writing her very first testimonial book about her life titled, “How God Took Me In”. L. Williams is also scheduled to attend orientation to become a first-time home owner.
Ms. Williams insists that the Transitional Housing Program, her Case Manager, along with her faith in God, helped her to rise above her situation.
