"Paula’s" childhood was traumatic – filled with periods of homelessness and neglect – and years later she continued to experience anxiety, depression, and PTSD symptoms. At seventeen, she was camping with friends but without a regular place to sleep, shower, and meet her basic needs, she struggled to stay enrolled in school. When she arrived at Station 7, she was reluctant to access overnight shelter services but decided to stay after talking with staff about her goals. She was determined to take control of her health and living situation so that she could complete her education. With Looking Glass’ help, Paula received counseling, learned fiscal responsibility, and applied for jobs – all while maintaining a 4.0 GPA. She now has her own apartment and will graduate from high school next year.
