One of Laurie White’s classes required her to do a community project. After some research, White learned how many refugees struggling to find a job, often can't afford hygeine or cleaning products. “Imagine trying to get a job as a refugee and not having soap for bathing or washing clothes or even a toothbrush. How can you be successful?” said White.
Lori had never been to a food bank, asked for help or been without a home for herself and her 2-year-old son and teenage daughter. After losing her home, Lori and her children ended up living on the streets.
