Shanae Smith is a Texas parent who had ended a volatile relationship. Many of her belongings were missing or destroyed in the aftermath of the breakup. After her ex-partner was sentenced to a 20 year prison sentence, this circumstance ripped her family apart.
Her children were sent to live with relatives while Shanae struggled to get on her feet. Work was hard to come by and Shanae was unable to afford day care or even the hotel where she was residing. Child Protective services stepped in and the separation between Shanae and her children grew even wider. It was months before Shanae could even see her children.
However, with the help of a grant from Phillips Charitable Organizations, Shanae is now able to afford an apartment for her and her children to start a new home. Additionally, the grant is also helping pay for quality daycare services, as Shanae was able to find regular employment to provide for her now-reunited family.
