Rebecca was born in Sierra Leone and came to the United States on a Lottery Visa about eight years ago to start a new life, progress professionally and provide for her family back in Sierra Leone. Rebecca first became involved with CFNC when her eldest son was enrolled at our preschool. During that year she built a strong relationship with her CFNC Social Worker. With her support, Rebecca was able to maintain her job as a single mother while she had her second son; she bought herself a car, began studying for her nursing degree and moved into her own apartment. Today, her youngest son is a student at CFNC. “It has been a challenging journey, full of big changes, but it boosted Rebecca to where she is today,” said her CFNC social worker.
