Meet Khadija Ahmed

She is like any parent and wants the best for her children.  But life has thrown a lot of challenges her way - - like war.  As a result, Khadija was forced to live in a Somali refugee camp in Kenya.

When she and her family moved to Ohio and joined Homeport’s Emerald Glen community 12 years ago, they finally felt at home.  The many programs and services provided by Homeport have helped them to succeed where they live.  Khadija and her children feel better prepared to face everyday challenges.  They have developed a sense of pride for the community and appreciate the impact of giving back.
