Ever since she was a little girl, Ashley longed to start her own business. Instead, she put others’ needs before her own, and those needs took priority. She felt like she was drowning in responsibilities and lost sight of her lifelong dream. At the brink of losing her home, and with everything she knew at risk, she found Sojourner Truth House. Through the STH Career Services program — offered at no cost to her—Ashley participated in entrepreneurship classes where she learned how to apply for a business license successfully and developed a website to create a steady stream of income. Now, Ashley is finally living one of her lifelong dreams as an entrepreneur.
