In our on-going weekly coverage of the Women of Alexandria House, part of our Real People, Real Stories series, Uprising producer Bipasha Shom brings you the stories of women who have lived in transitional housing. They all come from different places and have experienced a variety of challenges, but what ties them together is the courage and resilience they find within themselves as they share publicly their stories here on Uprising.
Today we feature Carmie a single mom who came to the United States from the Phillipines to start a new life but ended up homeless. With the help of Alexandria House she was able to rebuild her life.
Alexandria House in Los Angeles has helped countless women and children, offering not only transitional housing but also support for job training, legal counseling, healthcare and childcare to get back on their feet.
