As a former graduate of Family Promise of Lawrence (Kansas), homelessness became a defining moment in the restoration process of her life. Since her time with Family Promise, Rebecca has received her social work degree from the University of Kansas and is currently pursuing her MSW. Her goal is to use her experience and education to move forward the cause of social justice for at-risk people.
“I want to help others with whom I have shared experiences. I believe that the most valuable asset given to me by Family Promise is the relationships that continue to exist, the mentorship that still takes place, and the help I have received in many areas of my life when I have needed it. I want to pay it forward.”
