Anna moved to Florida from Tennessee with her 2 year old son.  Anna is a CNA, who couldn't obtain employment in her field until her CNA certification transferred from Tennessee to Florida.  She moved in with her brother and sought assistance from various agencies to fill their basic needs.  Our Lady of Lourdes sent her to The HWG Foundation, Inc.  Diaper Bank to relieve her of her "diaper need".  Here We Grow Foundation, Inc. provided her with diapers, wipes and rash cream.  On her second visit to the diaper bank, Anna flashed her work badge, showing that her certification was transferred and she was now working.  She now only requires assistance until she receives her first few paychecks and is back on her feet
