Have you ever met someone willing to do whatever it takes to get back on track? Cherie did exactly that when she came to Hearth Homes last April. Cherie found herself without housing and pregnant while trying to maintain her walk of recovery. Cherie desired stability for her unborn child and was willing to set aside many of the freedoms we take for granted every day.
It wasn’t long before Cherie took on a leadership role at Hearth Homes, stepping up to be our first ROC…Resident On-Call. Cherie was able to provide great insight during house meetings and through our Self Evaluation processes. Her determination was evident as she was 9 months pregnant walking to the bus in summer heat to get to appointments, classes and groups. After giving birth to a beautiful baby boy, Cherie quickly moved forward in her housing planning and obtained a rental for her little family. She is eager to get started in the Medical Equipment Repair program at SCC, doing “anything it takes to go to school”.
Cherie continues to participate in our Post-Transition Case Management and is remaining strong in pursuit of her goals despite being “busier than ever.” We are so impressed by Cherie and thankful to have witnessed her amazing strength and growth while at Hearth Homes.
