Anjelina – Single Mother Finding Hope with Reduced Work

Anjelina is a single mother of three children who had been raising them all on her own since they were babies. They are currently ages 17, 16 and 7-years old and living at home. She had worked for seven years supporting them off a CNA salary when she decided to advance her career as a Medical Assistant. Angelina works for St. Anthony in Environmental Services and is looking for an opportunity to work in a clinic using her education as a Medical Assistant.

When Covid-19 virus shut down departments at St. Anthony’s, they reduced her hours of work which made it difficult to keep up with payments on her vehicle and to keep up with the repairs. She eventually had to let the vehicle go back to the bank. Unfortunately, she found Hands after her vehicle was repossessed, otherwise, she would have applied for the vehicle repair program and had it repaired through Hands. Instead, Anjelina applied for the placement program and was approved.

On September 24, 2020, Anjelina was placed into a 2009 Toyota Camry. She was so overjoyed with the vehicle she received through the Hand’s placement program. She gives a special thanks to Hands for their work and for the auto body shop who did the body work to the Camry!
