Transportation for Kristiona to do her laundry

Posted Jul 10, 2021
Kristiona is not able to drive due to underlying health issues and has to rely on public transportation to get her places. Her apartments recently had to shut down the laundry room because of vandalism, leaving her without a way to get her clothes clean. She works with children in preschool and her clothes get pretty well loved. She is need of some assistance with an Uber to get her to and from the laundromat while the property management team figures out what to do about the laundry room. She would greatly appreciate a little extra support during this time.

Kristiona is 28 years old and lives in CO

Originally, Kristiona was placed in Foster Care at the age of two where she was adopted, only to again be bounced around from foster home to foster home at the age of nine. She was adopted and then returned to foster care where she aged out. Kristiona became independent and started her college journey and has been successful at it despite everyday obstacles and medical issues. Kristiona has graduated from CMU with her Bachelor's degree and is looking at continuing her education to work with children. She currently works with an early head start preschool as a teacher and enjoys every moment. Kristiona is committed to breaking a generational cycle of abuse and lack of education. Her ultimate goal is to own and run a summer camp for children in foster care, that is not only fun, but can also provide them with therapeutic and mentoring supports.
