Survivor Stories: Karla's Story

During COVID-19, survivors have faced many challenges, which required them to redirect their goals in their journey to healing. Karla had many setbacks when the pandemic happened. 

To accommodate Karla’s family, our transitional living program, Second Step, was able to provide her an extension to continue participating in the program. During the extension, Karla was determined to secure her housing situation. Through the support of Human Options, Karla was able to secure permanent housing and was projected to start employment two weeks after her move in date. Due to the virus, Karla was informed she was not allowed to start employment. Not letting this delay her path to move forward and heal, Karla was determined to work on personal growth while she waits with the hiring process for employment.
