Sarah was the first ever candidate for I RISE. Sarah, a registered CNA, had been facing residual homelessness throughout her life. Upon reaching a level of stability, she had the unfortunate circumstance of her nursing client passing away, resulting in losing her main stream of income. Shortly after this, a bed bug infestation ruined her home environment. The financial burdens of her life began to pile up and led to her facing homelessness once again. I RISE was then able to step in and help Sarah move forward into a life of self-sufficiency.
