Formerly Homeless, Now Homeward Bound

Thanks to the Urban League Ms. Walker no longer sleeps in her car and she was able to get off the street. Below is her letter of thanks, in her own words:

Today I, Latasha Walker, walked into the Urban League hoping to find shelter as I have been homeless over a year. After contacting many agencies daily including 211 (housing resource hotline), my search was finally over and found housing for me immediately.

I am truly grateful to Mrs. Paula Carey for being her last name- Caring. She my situation as if it were her own and made sure I didn't leave feeling defeated as I've done in the past walking into agencies only giving promises to help but leaving me helpless.

I pray all who enter into any facility in need of assistance walk away with success and renewed hope as I have today.

If you or anyone you know needs help finding a place to live, contact our local Urban League near you!
