Destini Davis and her child were living with her grandmother in Detroit. She wanted to make a fresh start in Mt. Clemens and began searching online for local food pantries. She found The Salvation Army Mt. Clemens Corps Community Center and reached out for food assistance. After discussing her needs with her caseworker, LaCretia, the corps staff helped secure Destini’s first month rent and find a suitable daycare.
Destini was settling in and doing well when she, like so many others, was laid off from her job last year because of COVID-19 and began struggling to make ends meet. She was signed up for the Mt. Clemens Corps’ Pathway of Hope program and discussed her life goals with her caseworker. She decided she wanted to get a car and become a Pharmacy Technician. As of today, through her hard work and the support of the Mt. Clemens Corps, Destini has achieved both of her goals!
“The rent assistance helped me get on my feet, and setting goals with LaCretia has helped me a lot in life,” says Destini. “Anyone who is struggling can find help at their local Salvation Army, just like my daughter and I did.”
