This young veteran and victim of violent crime fleeing an unhealthy relationship arrived homeless at Alpha House of Tampa. She took advantage of every program offered, worked and attended school throughout her stay. She earned her Associate's degree and got her driver's license before moving out of Alpha House of Tampa into her own apartment and is now enrolled in college and working full-time.
