Her own experience with homelessness at 14 taught her many things, the most important one being: “Your DNA does not define you future and if you really want to change your circumstances and break the cycle, it is possible. Only you can change the direction your life is going. It is a lot of hard work, but what a beautiful life it becomes when you believe in yourself and your abilities.” As a leader in the community, Peggy works to create an environment of hope, trust, empowerment, and transformation with her staff, participants, and community partners.
