Shayna* lost her husband and her mother within 6 months. She faced not only grief and loneliness, but also the financial burden of two homes - her own and her mother’s. With mounting debt, Shayna broke down. Delinquent on two rental payments, she turned to YWCA's Resource Center, which provided a grant that covered her debts. Now, Shayna can face her loss and is moving forward with renewed optimism.
