Rosa arrived at Nazareth Housing shelter as an unemployed single mother having survived domestic violence. Using an array of supportive services, Nazareth Housing assisted her immigration regularization and arranged internship programs until she received permission to work in the United States. Rosa earned a paid position within a program in the Mayor’s Office to Combat Domestic Violence.
She and her children are now living in their own apartment with the help of a domestic violence LINC housing subsidy. With our ongoing support, Rosa is building her economic independence and her kids are succeeding in school.
