Friends, meet Francis Fuller. Francis is 51 years old and came to live at Presbyterian Night Shelter in December 2015 after her mother whom she was living with suffered a stroke. Her mom was hospitalized for four months, and inevitably lost the lease on the house they shared because alone, Francis was unable to pay the rent.
For the past twenty plus years, Francis has raised three children and supported her brothers, sisters, and children by assisting them with childcare and home support.
In February 2016, Francis learned to her surprise that she is expecting her fourth child in September. Without any support from the father, or means to support herself, Francis is eager to work as a housekeeper, custodian, dishwasher, or cook; in other words, she is excited to put her domestic skills and experience to good use.
At this time, Francis does not possess a drivers license, but she does have a state issued ID and social security card. Her drug screen and background are both clean, without felonies and a single misdemeanor drug charge from eleven years ago. In addition to helping Francis gain employment, the Leg Up is coordinating reading and writing private tutoring for her, so she can sharpen these critical skills, preparing her for GED course work and testing she is planning to begin this summer.
Francis is in need of a Leg Up. You can count on her to perform her job duties and responsibilities with enthusiasm and focus. She will be loyal and consistent in her efforts, and will win the hearts of the people she works for with her sweet and kind demeanor.
If you have an opportunity or an idea for how to give Francis the Leg Up she needs, please call Lauren at (682)499-7800 or send an email to Lauren.Doeren@LegUpFW.org
Happiness is unconditional helping! Together we can do more 🙂
