Claudette is a Bronx Renaissance woman – Lehman College student, aspiring social worker, President of the Lehman Adult Degree Program Student Association, mother of six children, and an Intake Specialist and Housing Connect intern for UNHP.
There was a time when Claudette would have been unable to be so active. While working as a mechanic, Claudette was crushed by a car when the repair lift failed. Claudette was in a body cast for six months and for a long time was physically unable to live a normal life. The loss of her job and her physical restrictions brought Claudette to a depressed state. Claudette credits the All Boro Adult Daycare Center in the Bronx with helping her “get out of my shell. They encouraged me to keep active and enroll in Lehman College.”
