Chloe and her four year old daughter found themselves victims of domestic violence. Knowing that she needed to keep her daughter and herself safe, Chloe escaped her attacker and found refuge at the YWCA, Utah Domestic Violence Shelter. Chloe has a disabling back condition, but that never stopped her from having a positive attitude and working hard with her case manager to build a better life for her and her daughter. Chloe’s case manager contacted The Road Home’s Rapid Rehousing office to help Chloe find housing. Together, The Road Home, the YWCA, Utah, and Chloe were able to find an apartment that would work well for her and her daughter.
Chloe always had a positive attitude and was always asking herself “what can I do to make a better future with what I have.” This attitude helped her to work hard for the things she felt were best for her and her daughter. She knew that she wanted her daughter to be well educated and so she found a private school that she felt would be the best fit for her child. Chloe knew she could not afford this type of education, however she worked with the school and was able to gain a full ride scholarship for her daughter.
Due to her disabling condition, Chloe was not able to work, however that didn’t stop her from finding something she could do. Working with her case manager from the Department of Workforce Services, Chloe is working to gain a business license and website so she can start her own home based bakery.
We are honored to have been a part of Chloe’s journey home, and cannot wait to see all of the things she will accomplish in life thanks to her wonderful attitude and the question she always asks herself, “What can I do to make a better future with what I have?” She is truly an inspiration to us all!
