Chelsea lost her mother to cancer when she was just nine years old. Dealing with the loss of his wife, Chelsea’s father was forced to raise his daughter as a single parent. Her father, working in the construction industry suddenly lost his job. Struggling to pay the rent without a steady income, they were evicted from their home with nowhere to go. Eventually, Chelsea and her father found shelter at The Crossing. Chelsea shared her story at our breakfast two years ago. She and her father now live in an apartment, and he is back to work with a great job. She graduated from Early College of Arvada this May and is currently attending community college with a major in social work, giving her the opportunity to give back and support others as so many have done for her.
