“I learned early on to not get attached to things or places. So the thought of having my own bed to sleep on felt like a foreign thing for me. Having my home created by ASOH would mean I am giving myself permission to own my own bed. It is also a reminder that I will have a stable place to live for the next year. It’s a speckle of hope - things will only get better from here if I chose to keep moving along.” -Regina

Regina has graduated with her Masters in Psychology from UCLA and is now studying for her doctorate at USC all while working full time. We are so proud of Regina and all her accomplishments.
Special thank you to the Duffy family and friends @jduff614 @michaelrduffy for sponsoring Regina’s home creation and joining us on such a beautiful day! ♥️🏠🫶
