Faces of Hope: Adela

Adela and her 16-year-old son are refugees. Originally escaping the violence and poverty in Rwanda, they migrated to the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). The DRC is one of the poorest countries in the world, with no opportunities for them. In addition, it was equally dangerous for the family. They came to America with hopes of a better life.

With limited ability to speak English and no family to assist, they found themselves homeless. But then they were introduced to Samaritan House shelter. While residing there, Adela found a part-time job cleaning an office building and was able to save money. Liz, their case manager, found services to support the family through The Village Institute for immigrants in Aurora. They also found her and her son supportive housing that will help her learn English, find a full-time job and receive trauma therapy given the violence they witnessed in their country. After 103 days at Samaritan House, Adela is so thankful.

“I pray every day thanking God and Samaritan House for helping me,” she said. “It was so cold outside, and we froze at night. I am so grateful for Samaritan House and Liz. Finally, we will have peace.”
