Sonora shares her journey – from a self-doubting, frightened teenager into the courageous, inquisitive young woman she is today.
“Thank you to my staff and social worker at Maryvale, for standing by my side, helping me evolve into a better adult.
Even when I felt like I had nothing left, wanted to give up, the staff has always been on my team. Through the rough times, you guided me with resources and care to help prepare me for the real world.
My main objective in life is to help people who are struggling and are homeless. I used to have fears that I was going to be homeless … but I’ve practiced patience and learned to make it through obstacles and to strive hard for an independent life.
My time at Maryvale has helped me to continue going forward, not to turn around and go around in circles. I’ve learned to always try and try again even if you fail!”
