Find Shelter, Create New Foundation For Growing Family
LAS VEGAS (July 18, 2013) – A homeless young mother in Las Vegas has found proof that home is where the heart is.
Jennifer Dione, originally from (Detroit, MI), found herself at Living Grace Home in Las Vegas, suddenly jobless, newly homeless, recently pregnant and needing help that only Living Grace Home could provide.
Dione and her boyfriend, Towane Thomas, had begun a life together when life came crashing in around them. They both lost their jobs in the recession, and Thomas was forced to relocate back to New Jersey. Dione’s parents could not take her in, as they reside in an age restricted community.
Fortunately, Living Grace Home was there to help Dione create a foundation for her new life. Shortly after coming to Living Grace Home, she began communicating with Thomas again, and with the family style surroundings and support from the Living Grace caregivers, Dione was able to begin to rebuild.
Now the couple plan to tie the knot at Vegas Weddings Chapel on July 18, 2013 at 4pm. Vegas Weddings Chapel, located at 555 S. 3rd Street, has donated their services to the couple. “It is a pleasure to support Living Grace Home and help Jennifer & Towane start their life together,” said Ann Parsons, Marketing Director for Vegas Weddings.
“Living Grace Home provided a home for me when I had no where else to go. I have no idea what would have happened to me or my baby. Thanks to Living Grace Home, we have a second chance, and our family can begin our life together,” Dione said.
Living Grace Home Executive Director Kathleen Miller said, “Jennifer is a perfect example of why Living Grace Home exists and how we play an important role in the Las Vegas community. We help 25 women just like Jennifer every year, and we are thankful to the generous support of the Las Vegas community for enabling us to provide the necessary services that we do.”
