Simone Scott and her children are among the first residents of the Conway Center, an affordable housing development in Washington, D.C., that also provides job training, health care, and other resources, thanks to a grant from Wells Fargo.
Just a few years ago, Simone Scott lost her job, lost her home, and suffered a seizure while pregnant, all in a short period of time, leaving her, her young son, and newborn daughter homeless.
