Magdalena and her husband eventually divorced and her life started to go downhill. She moved to LA where she was homeless and lived on the streets. At first all she had was a blanket which was loaned to her by another woman experiencing homelessness. Eventually she got a tent and that's where she spent her first cold winter.
'That tent saved my life' she says.
Eventually she was connected to permanent housing at the DTWC--which she loves! She's been there for five years now and things are going well.
At Would Works, Magdelena is working towards housing expenses and transportation costs to see her children for the holidays. We are thankful for all her hard work and are rooting for her to reach all of her goals in life!
