Long Story Short

Feb - BettyBetty got laid off from the hospital she worked at for years. Then her apartment rent skyrocketed by $300. Because both dramatic changes happened at the same time, she could not afford her home anymore. When Betty got her eviction notice, she had to leave behind everything and walked away with only a suitcase and backpack. What she misses the most is her own little library of 2,000 books.

Betty, now in our shelter, is trying to get her nursing status in WA reinstated and license renewed. She says “The Sophia Way is a home away from home”
