Ava & Family

Ava and Her Son


What does “home” mean to you?

To me home is a happy place.

Who or what inspires you?

The saying, “Good things happen to those who don’t give up” inspires me.

What was your life like before Bridge of Hope Harrisburg Area?

Before Bridge of Hope Harrisburg Area I was going to school and working an externship without pay. My son and I don’t have much support from family or friends. My family was moving so I had to find housing and I became homeless. I lost both my job and my car.  

Where do you want to see yourself and your family in the next one to two years?

I’d like to finish school and get a good, steady job and take my radiology test. I want to have more time to spend with my son. I want to own a home.

In one word describe your family’s personality?
