Johanna Catedral-Arias is a native of Puerto Rico. When she came to StepUp Ministry she was seeking an opportunity to improve her life by making necessary changes that would positively impact her family. She is a mother to three wonderful boys, Ramsesses, Hector, and Zahid.
Johanna began her journey with StepUp Ministry on November 13, 2017, when she completed the Employment Workshop. As a result, she gained full-time employment with the Hyatt House at North Hills. Johanna then entered the Life Skills program, eager to learn more. While active in Life Skills, our staff was able to assist her in gaining joint custody of her children. On August 27, 2019, Johanna began her new career with Alliance Medical Ministry as a full-time receptionist.
Johanna has made great strides by securing her very own two-bedroom apartment as well as furniture from The Green Chair Project. She was also able to purchase a laptop computer through the Kramden Institute. We would like to thank all of our community partners that helped Johanna StepUp!
If you see Johanna, please join me in congratulating her for all of her accomplishments.
