The Legacy Institute for Financial Education and Georgia-Pacific recently delivered the first set of handmade beds to a Nacogdoches family displaced because of a fire.
Carissa Rowen and her children — Kiman, Michael, Miguel, Winter and Jakovia — recently lost their home and all of their belongings in a fire.
“The family has been living at her apartment since Jan. 28 without beds for the children, who have been sleeping on the floor,” Joseph Ceasar, founder and executive director of LIFE said.
LIFE launched in 2021 its Next Chapter program, which includes a carpentry training program identified by the U.S. Department of Labor as a registered apprenticeship program.
