INLIVIAN is looking forward to silver linings in 2021

Like no other time in recent history, 2020 has been the year of accepting life altering changes.  We can safely call it the year of unexpected turns. With unprecedented events challenging our standards of living, our sense of security and placing our emotional well-being at risk, 2020 will go down in history as the year the world, and  each of us, was turned upside down.

INLIVIAN, like many of you, is taking a deep sigh of relief believing and hoping that the worst is behind us.   While the pandemic has challenged how we do business, it has not stopped our mission or slowed our commitment to provide housing for those who need it most.

Taking Greater Steps for our students

Well, it seems that INLIVIAN, is not the only organization to change names.   The Charlotte Housing Authority Scholarship Fund is now known as Greater Steps Scholars. The organization’s mission remains the same: to serve as a vehicle of hope for students living in Charlotte subsidized housing that have a desire to achieve but lack the financial means needed to fulfill their dreams. Through a blend of financial aid and one-on-one coaching with a professional mentor, Greater Steps inspires students through their post-secondary education journeys and helps them become independent, self-reliant members of their communities.

With The Snow Legal Group

Attorney Kenneth D. Snow has been fighting for justice and winning cases in the Carolinas for more than 20 years.  A graduate of Johnson C. Smith University and North Carolina Central University’s School of Law, his firm, The Snow Legal Group, has built a reputation for taking tough cases and winning. In December, The Snow Legal Group adopted an INLIVIAN family and was gracious enough to pay their utility bill, provide groceries and bless them with Christmas gifts for their children.  In February, the firm is launching a series of legal workshops to help INLIVIAN residents better understand their rights when encountering the police and educating them about the benefits of expunging their records and what that process entails
