Rashida’s Story

Rashida continues to work hard to support her family and pursue her goals during the pandemic. Hear in her own words how she’s faring.

“Given the opportunities that I have now with Britepaths and partnering with other organizations, I’m fortunate and blessed enough to stay in my home despite these challenges,” Rashida says.

When Rashida first came to Britepaths, she had experienced a number of setbacks, including homelessness. In just under two years — with guidance from our staff and volunteers, and a lot of hard work — Rashida has reduced her debt, found stable housing, maintained employment, enrolled in school for Occupational Therapy, and is giving her all to maintain some semblance of hope for her two children during this very difficult time. It’s a lot, and she is their sole source of support, but she’s handling it well.

Thanks to Britepaths’ supporters, Rashida’s family, and many others, have been able to stay in their homes and continue their inspiring paths to self-sufficiency despite the pandemic.
