Rebekah and three-year-old Miggy arrived eager to be part of this neighborhood. Because she has a history of ADHD that she works hard to manage, she took some time to get settled and adjusted to life here. She began to get to know the other residents and the neighbors, looked for ways she could serve others, and shared her love of art. When she was ready, she began looking for a job and for childcare for Miggy. She found the Rent Well classes very helpful as she prepared to get her own place. The Genesis Process classes helped her face some personal issues. She worked hard to overcome the challenges of living with the other women. She found ways to work through conflicts and live peacefully and respectfully together. After much effort and with help from Neighborhood House with transportation, and Albina Head Start with child care, she found a job as a cook, which she loves. Soon, Rebekah will be ready to move out into her own place with a steady job, safe housing, and greater hope. The Community of Hope provided a boost during a challenging time in Rebekah’s and Miggy’s lives and prepared them for their next step.
