Faith Mission

Margot worked as an office manager when, as a result of downsizing, she was let go.  She decided to enter the nursing field, pulled her savings together and earned her State Tested Nursing Assistant certification.  She then began working full-time at a skilled nursing facility and eventually paid her debts to a point where it was possible to attend school full-time and work part-time.  Shortly before nursing school began, however, Margot was again unemployed.  With her money invested in nursing school, she was forced to move into her car.  Weary, hungry and desperate, she called a homeless shelter that referred her to Nancy’s Place.

Margot says she is grateful for the shelter, as she is in a safe, faith-based environment that will support her in her achieving her goals of becoming a nurse and finding permanent housing.  Margot was appointed to the nursing school’s student advisory council, an honor based on her demonstrated leadership abilities and academic achievements.  None of this would have been possible, Margot adds, without help from Nancy’s Place.
