Rhonda spent almost 20 years in the system, bouncing around from group homes, to foster homes, and ultimately to the streets. With a young son and twins on the way, she was determined to give her children something she never had - a stable home. Her journey started when she found temporary housing through Huckleberry House and she was introduced to CHN in 2006.
When she received the call that CHN had an apartment for her, Rhonda was in the hospital after giving birth to her twins. When she was ready, CHN ensured Rhonda and her children had a safe place to call home.
Their CHN home was more than just an apartment. On-site service providers worked with Rhonda to make sure her family’s needs were met, helped her address serious mental health concerns, and assisted her in earning her GED. She went on to earn an associate degree from Columbus State and is now training to become a registered nurse.
After 16 years and a lot of hard work, Rhonda left CHN housing and became a first-time homeowner. We are so proud of Rhonda and honored to be part of her story.
