Schirlyn

(shur-Lyn)

A survivor of domestic violence, Schirlyn fled with her children to a dangerous neighborhood, the only place she could afford to live. With the help of a local small business development training program, she started her non-profit business. Schirlyn now works with inner-city children to teach life skills.

"The training program helped me develop my business and gave me the encouragement and hope I needed to make it a reality." – Schirlyn
