Sharon and Keshira have lived in their CASA apartment for ten years. Keshira, now a senior in high school, reflects on all they’ve been through: “No matter how many things we’ve gone through or no matter what’s happened, mom has just kept it going. She’s actually pursuing her dream of becoming a lawyer, and I’m proud of her for that.” Since moving into their CASA apartment, Sharon has earned her associates degree in Criminal Justice, her paralegal certificate, her BS from William Peace University, and she’s currently in law school. “Being able to afford my rent and food—I’m really grateful for that.” Sharon and Keshira are very close. Sharon says, “That’s my best friend. I’m still mama. I’m mama, daddy, sister, brother, best friend. She knows I love her.”
