Kiesha

Rooftop Client

One spill in the parking lot outside of work was all it took and Kiesha was suddenly in a precarious situation.  Kiesha is a single mom of twins.  She was works full time as a restaurant manager.  The fall separated her shoulder and she had to have surgery.  Her job was protected, but she was not medically cleared to work for over a month.  The property manager of her building was not local and had stict policy for eviction.  Rooftop and our partner congregations supported Kiesha through her recovery period.  Nine months later Kiesha is in the same job, her twins are growing, and she was able to move after her lease expired into an apartment with a lower rent.
