Leilana came to Union Station in 2003 after being in the penitentiary for the third time. Her life was filled with gangs, drugs and jail before she came to Union Station ten years ago. Her life was transformed and today she lives and works in the community and is a proud alumni of Union Station.
“I was homeless. I came out of the penitentiary and all my family had shut the door on me. But Union Station opened their doors to me… It was a beautiful door that helped me turn my life around… They gave me a second chance at life,” Leilana says.
