Lilly’s Big Move!

Lilly is a 19 year old girl, who escaped sex-trafficking only to land in homelessness.
She is bright, vibrant, and unwilling to let anything hold her back. Lilly’s goal is not only to be self-sufficient but also to attend and graduate college and become an oral surgeon. She has done nothing less than excel and impress us since she came to the the LegUp in January, and after graduating the LegUp Program, she is holding down a full time job and now is ending her time in homelessness and being coached by the LegUp. 
 
We are so excited and blessed to help her get set up in her first apartment!
 
But we need your help!
 
Help us set Lilly up with all the comforts of home. As you are doing your spring cleaning we ask that you bring your gently used goods and furniture to the LegUp!
