Jonita Lewis was once living at Grace House while pregnant with one child and trying to raise another, but they helped her get back on her feet. Now, she’s back to help families living there in her new career with Hope Villages of America.
A Tampa Bay woman is retracing her roots back to when life was anything but easy. She was homeless and trying to raise a family on her own when a local nonprofit came to the rescue. Now, she’s doing the rescuing.
“Young mother, pregnant at the time, just struggling and going through some hardships, unemployed and I found myself homeless and reached out to the Grace House and they had availability,” said Lewis.
