Cassandra's Story

Meet Cassandra, a past
Dawning Family Services client.
Listen to her story, in her own
words. Cassandra experienced domestic violence while she
was pregnant, eventually leading
to her and her children
becoming homeless.
But that is not the end of her story. She has overcome so much.
As her case manager says,
“Cassandra is a rock star!”

We can’t help but feel proud of all
that Cassandra has accomplished
with the support from
Dawning Family Services.
