Louisa was working many long hours as a first responder while attending nursing school when she enrolled her daughter, Mariela, at Child’s Path. Despite working a lot, she was having a hard time making ends meet financially. She applied for–and was granted–a partial scholarship for her daughter.
Things were finally looking up. Then, just before Thanksgiving, the family survived a devastating house fire. They lost their home and all of their belongings. This family remained so positive, despite the incredible hardship they faced. They received help from throughout the community. Families at Child’s Path donated clothes and other items to get them back on their feet. Louisa recently graduated from her nursing program, and says she could not have finished without the help of Child’s Path.
