Success Stories / Towanda
Towanda, a former Grace House resident and a graduate of the St. Leonard’s Adult High School, is currently a student at Harold Washington College. Towanda’s early years were not easy; living on the streets takes its toll on a person in many ways. Somewhere between coming to Grace House and successfully completing its program, Towanda made the decision to put the streets far behind her and to make something of her life. In addition to school and work, Towanda is raising her two teen-age sons – perhaps the hardest job she could have undertaken.
