Trinity has four boys between the ages of one and nine, and has the sympathy of mothers everywhere. As much of a challenge as raising four sons might be by itself, Trinity has also had to overcome incredible difficulties just to find a secure and healthy environment for her children. A Banyan House resident since February, Trinity grew up in a tough neighborhood and had troubles with drug addiction early on.
“I hit rock bottom in my life. I was in recovery for a year, before going back to live with my mom. That was definitely a bad decision, going back to that horrible environment. Everyone was using drugs, and my living place was just trash, just plain trash. I definitely did not want to raise my children there.” She started her search to find a shelter to live in and after many rejections from other agencies she found FESCO and entered the Les Marquis House.
She quickly moved into Banyan House with her boys and was able to create a stable environment for her family. Besides working two part time jobs she will be returning to college this Fall to continue her studies. Trinity aspires to teach as a college English professor. She turned out to be an an extraordinarily bright, straight-A student sporting a 4.0 grade-point average.
