About the blogger: Daniella is a relative newcomer to AFG’s Shelter. She wrote this blog as part of her application to AFG’s Transition to Independent Living (TIL) Program, AFG’s long-term shelter program that helps homeless young women become truly independent Since writing this, Daniella has been accepted into TIL.
Participating in the TIL program will help me reach that goal by providing me a guaranteed place to stay so I don’t have to worry about where I’m going to lay my head after work. It will also help me save my money because I don’t have to pay rent. And when I’m ready to go back to California I will be prepared with enough money to buy an apartment.
Being here will also help me get a car. Catching the bus is hard, especially in the cold weather. The buses are unreliable and it can be harder trying to find work when relying on the bus. This program will help me save money for the future.
