When Alex arrived at Almost Home, she was on the right track, but she also needed some help to help herself! She’s enrolled in cosmetology school, where she is working toward her license in hair design and is also hoping to get an aesthetician’s license. Her dream is to one day open up her own salon, so in her free time she studies business online! When she came to Almost Home, she had an unsteady part-time job that didn’t pay well. Now, she’s working stable hours at another restaurant. In the last few months, Alex opened a bank account, created and started following budget, paid off all her debt, and is meeting her monthly savings goals. Every day Alex takes another step forward in her pursuit of a better future for her son CJ!
