Success Stories / Carla

Carla, a mother of two, was one of the first women to come through Grace House when it opened 1994. She was desperate to find a way to stay out of prison and to care for her three children. Little by little, life began to move along paths Carla had never imagined. She joined the staff at Grace House and has remained a key person in all that happens there. She graduated from the St. Leonard’s Adult High School and is enrolled in Northeastern Illinois University, working toward her bachelor’s degree in criminal justice. What a fine example she has become for her children!
