Blossoming and always moving forward

Meet Runisha!

Guest Services Director at Lotus House

What was your experience like at Lotus House?
When I first came to Lotus House I was scared. It was my first time ever being in a shelter. Yet when I came into Lotus House I was welcomed by staff that made me feel welcome and appreciated. This was when Lotus House was just a couple of apartments.I am proud to say that now I am a part of this amazing team and watched it flourish into what it is today. I became part of the team as an Operations Manager then moved on to becoming Barista and part of the Retail team at thrift to eventually becoming a Guest Services Director.

How are your daughters doing?
I have two beautiful daughters, Desiree and Niyah. Desiree is in kindergarten. Niyah is in 7th grade. I am so proud of her, she has earned an honor roll every semester.  She plans to attend college and pursue a medical career. 

What can you tell us about life since leaving Lotus House?

Since leaving Lotus House I have been able to blossom. I have a great job as the Afternoon Shift Director at Lotus House. I have my own apartment and have two amazing daughters, Niyah and Desiree.

What are you most looking forward to in 2022?
One of my biggest goals to achieve this year is to obtain my CBHT Certification. As well to keep on climbing the ladder and excelling my goals in life.
