Gabriel Johnson had nowhere else to turn when she first stepped through the doors of Living Grace Homes.
She and her 2-year-old son were homeless. And because she was just aging out of foster care, she was at risk of losing him.
“I’d had a baby at 13, and I was so used to running,” she said. “It was one thing after another. But now, it’s stable.”
The Henderson nonprofit, a safe haven for homeless, pregnant young women and moms, helped her get her son back, land a job and get on track to start school soon, she said.
And now, the home she and three other women share has been completely upgraded, thanks to a $87,400 donation, raised by HomeAid Southern Nevada. On Friday, they celebrated the renovation with a dedication.
