“I was 21 years old when a male soldier in Seoul Korea verbally abused me and I reported the incident and those memories are still fresh in my mind,” says Leah. “It got so stressful that I almost had a miscarriage,” adds Leah. “I was transferred to a less stressful job collecting items needed for incoming soldiers.”

“I like to think that I am not homeless here at HVAF because I have all these resources that I need,” she says. “When I am able to move on to permanent housing, HVAF has a program (SSVF) that will help me purchase a bed and a couch,” she says.
Today, Leah continues to utilize HVAF housing and is also an active runner with Back on My Feet, a national nonprofit organization that promotes self-sufficiency through running.
