“My story I was born a Muslim. The reason I am homeless because, I have always had to depend on myself running everything. I had to grow up fast and learn things fast. As a young woman I should be independent with goals. However life has a way of throwing one obstacle after another. However I have made progress and learned many things about myself. Without Allah’s help I would not have made it this far. Many young woman trying to find their way and don’t make it. I was afraid I knew I had no place to go. I desperately called Wafa House they got me in touch with sister Khadija. Sister Khadija gave me my own room, money for food to eat because, I had not eaten all day. I have also met several wonderful people along the way but, sister Khadija really helped me and took me in. I am happy now and I want to fill my life with happiness as well as love. Allah, has been good to me. Thanks to Allah.”
