Helping Herself to a Fresh Start

Kathy moved to Redmond in 2010 to start new.  She was a single parent of a teenage boy and her lifelines were child support, food stamps and her Housing Choice Voucher.

She came to Housing Works and joined the PATHWorks Program. With the help of our staff, Kathy developed a plan for the new direction she wanted for her life.  She improved her credit and established a budget.

It took two years for her to achieve her biggest goal: getting her nursing license.  With the degree, she started a new job and released her housing assistance. With support from Housing Works programs, and a willingness to help herself, Kathy changed her life dramatically for the better.  “I am very happy and no longer feel like I have to hide from anyone or anything,” she says.  “I now can be the person I want to be.”
