Waiting for Wheels: Tanya's Story
Tanya (not her real name to protect her identity) currently resides in a residential program for young girls that are victims of human trafficking. They provide her with basic necessities, as well as treatment for alcohol and drug abuse. Through their Vocational Rehabilitation Services, she has landed a life changing position as an apprentice with a local florist. She works alongside their top designers creating everything from simple nosegays to intricate, formal arrangements.
The only problem is that the bus she takes to work each day drives through her old neighborhood, which is full of prostitutes, drugs and horrific memories. She wants to move on and not look back at her past life. Her dream is to own her first vehicle, and never have to travel through her old neighborhood again.
When Tanya receives her Wheels vehicle, she will be able to do just that. She will be promoted at her job and literally drive away from her past. With her vehicle from Wheels of Success, she may even open her own floral business one day.
