Angel Baptist came to Greensboro Urban Ministry after facing the challenges of substance abuse and unhealthy relationships. She is a resident at Partnership Village, a community where women, men and families with children who have experienced homelessness can find support, structure and community as they get back on their feet.
“At Partnership Village, I’m learning to pay my bills, be a better housekeeper and be accountable,” she says. “My case manager is a sounding board for major decisions. Here, I look farther than right in front of me. I’m setting goals. I’m definitely not alone. I am part of a community.”
Angel is also a student at N.C. A&T State University and works at Weaver House Shelter.
