Ranesha – Adult Participant Success

Before coming to HPC, Ranesha was challenged by an unsupportive and toxic living situation with a family member. Determined to create a better environment for herself and her children, she made the courageous decision to leave, leading them to spend several months in a hotel. Since then, Ranesha’s life has been marked by numerous moments of celebration and growth.

While in the program, her daughter J. achieved the significant milestone of high school graduation, while her daughter B. showcased athletic prowess in track, qualifying for the semi-finals in the 200, 400, and 800-meter races. The joy in Ranesha’s life extends to her youngest daughter, A., adding an adorable touch to the family. In addition, Ranesha also enjoys the arrival of her first grandchild, J.’s baby girl, who was born in October.

Professionally, Ranesha embraced a role as an independent contractor for Amazon delivery. Simultaneously, she began to pursue her passion for caregiving by enrolling in CNA classes through the Kansas workforce office, aiming for a career in a nursing facility. Expressing a genuine love for taking care of others, Ranesha envisions a fulfilling path in her new ambition.

Ranesha’s time with HPC empowered her to pay off debt and build a comfortable savings account.

In her own words, Ranesha shares, “I just want to say I’m thankful for this program and it’s a blessing. I’m grateful for being here and getting some help and some assistance. Thank you. I want to thank everybody.”
