Most Memorable Story: Was about a young woman who had a 16-year-old son and 10-year-old daughter and they were evicted from their home. They slept outside for nearly 11 days before being taken into a homeless shelter. After being there nearly four months she got her nursing assistant certification and got a job. A few weeks later she closed on a brand new habitat home. This story showed me anything is possible as long as you believe and work hard.
