ONE FAMILY’S STORY

SALMA’S SUCCESS STORY

When Kenyan journalist Salma arrived in the U.S. in early 2019, she was faced with the challenges of being a single mother in a place she had never been and where she knew no one. Salma came to Neighborhood House’s 19th Avenue Apartments just a few months after arriving in Portland with her young son. Thanks to her bravery and commitment to making a life for herself and her family, Salma has found housing, stability, and hope. Watch her story below:
