Prior to joining the Dax Program, Felicia found herself homeless after dorms closed due to the pandemic. She looked for rooms and apartments in Philadelphia but the rent was too expensive. For several weeks, she had no choice but to couch-surf and sleep in a friend’s basement.
Felicia found the Dax Program and joined with the goals of maintaining good grades, fixing credit card debt, saving money and obtaining a driver’s license. In the short time she has been a resident she has accomplished all of these goals. Felicia is resilient and is our first official graduate of the Dax Program at St. Joseph’s House.
