Groceries and essentials for Romana who works hard to be the best role model for her siblings

Posted May 22, 2020
Romana is currently a youth advocate. Her role is to assist alumni of the program with resources and referrals to housing, employment, food and general well-being. She was also accepted to the MSW program at CSULB and is set to start on August 2020. Since COVID-19 she has found herself struggling with some of these same things that she works with others on. This wish would help her with necessities like food and cleaning supplies. This crisis has caused some anxiety, but your help will provide peace of mind.

Romana is 27 years old and lives in Los Angeles, CA

Romana and her two sisters experienced foster care twice in their childhood. She recalls her parents struggle with alcoholism. The first placement in care came while her parents worked hard to get the help they needed. A few years later, Romana was able to return to them and things were pretty good for a couple of years. Unfortunately, during the end of her junior year in high school, they both got to such a low place, which led her to report them. While she emancipated at the age of 18, her sisters foster parents were granted legal guardianship. Romana works hard to continue to pursue higher education and strive to be the role model for her sisters that she knows they deserve.
