Jessica and her three children, Journei, Devy, and Davonni, came to Welcome House in July of 2019. Prior to seeking our services, Jessica and her beautiful family were relying on the hospitality of friends and relatives to stay with and, on occasion, sleeping in a hotel. When she met her coordinator, Andrew, they both were determined to set goals that would lead down a path of success. While at our Shelter for Homeless Women, Children, and Families, Jessica worked hard to stay in school, keep her kids achieving scholastic goals, and to find housing. “I just went into survival mode, I had three little people to look over,” says Jessica.
Today, Jessica has graduated from Cincinnati Cooks which is a program provided by the Freestore Foodbank and she is hopeful to continue her education to become a Chef at Cincinnati State. She is also well on her way to starting her future business called Everyone Loves Bacon food truck. But most important, Jessica and her children are living in their very own home.
