Kershaw's Story

A home of their own

After she and her husband separated, Kershaw's situation went from bad to worse. She lost her job. She couldn't make rent payments. So she and her four boys moved in with family until she heard about St. Lawrence Place.

Once they moved in things began to turn around. She earned her college degree and now works for the CMRTA. She's working to repair her credit and has been able to give her family something they've never had before: a home of their very own.
