At four years old, Wendy knew what it meant to be homeless. She was exposed to domestic violence all through childhood and so it seemed “normal” to her…so normal that when she began to experience abuse in her own relationship, she had no frame of reference for genuine love, safety, or a stable home life.
But once Wendy realized that she and her boys were in real danger, she fled. She knew it would mean sleeping in their car and possibly giving up her dream of finishing her degree… But thanks to Door of Hope and the Casa program, designed to nurture families whose moms are enrolled in vocational training programs, Wendy’s dream is still alive!
She and her sons are safe and she is on the path to teacher certification. More importantly, they are all on the road to home.
