Donna's Journey

Heartisans has been a life-changing experience — the support and the people. I would hate to think where I might be if Heartisans hadn’t been there for me.

Donna Ribble was referred to the Heartisans' job training program by the Women's Center of East Texas. She is not the same women who came through our door just a few short months ago. While in the program, she also worked part-time for Habitat for Humanity. Donna is now employed with Kilgore ISD as a bus driver and and is living in her own place with transportation. She also gets to spend time with her three boys twice a month; a major goal in her life.

Donna has worked hard to move toward self-sufficiency and is well on her way.
