Meet your newest nurse!
Diana G. is moving on to the next chapter of her life and pursuing her dreams! Through the Family Promise program, Diana was able to not only get a job working as school clinic assistant, but she has also gotten on the right track to begin on an exciting venture. Through her hard work and dedication, Diana is working hard to finish her RN degree so she can begin clinicals. She has received the Texas Star Oaks Fund scholarship to complete her education. Here she is pictured with Jan McKemy and Robbynn Selzer from the TSOF Scholarship Committee.
We are so proud of you, Diana!
Tonya and teenage son
Tonya arrived in Conroe to start a new job with her 16-year old son from Dallas in hopes that her leased apartment was ready for her. Unfortunately, the owner was no where around on move-in day. Without cash, a home, and no friends to assist her in a new town, Tonya lost her job and faced homelessness.
Through a referral, Tonya found out about Family Promise and decided she would apply. Her family entered the Family Promise Home-to-Home program in April on her 46th birthday.
“Family Promise has really given me a fresh start on life. I’m so thankful for the many opportunities given to me and my son. My experience has taught me to value things that are most important; smiling, giving, sharing. I was given the security and support I needed to fulfill my obligations and shown that with the right attitude there is a way to start over and be successful.”
