Lisa Schantz is a single mother in Los Angeles on her way to her cosmetology degree. She has completed 500 hours of 1600 hour program at a school in Anaheim, CA. The pressures of school during the day, working at night, and child care became a mountain of financial strain. A recent increase in child care costs was unexpected.
Ms.Schantz approached Karen and Charles Phillips Charitable Organizations to get into stable housing for her and her five year old son. The foundation was able to provide a timely grant to get Ms. Schantz stabilized and allow her to continue her studies with a plan to transition into a promising career on graduation.
