Andriea came to us as a 21yr old homeless young adult through the Covenant House Referral. As a former all State Track and field qualifier in High School, she was drawn to RHW for the running sessions.
How RHW helped
While completing her morning runs with the group Andriea was scouted by an AAU Track and field coach. As a result of her experience, she was afforded the opportunity to run in an adult Heat at The 2022 AAU National Track and Field open. Determined to change her life Andriea completed her training at the Painters Union and earned union membership. She was offered a job working at the State Capital with Clearances and was approved. With her new job, she was able to rent an apartment and is still currently working toward advancement in the construction industry.
