LeKita moved to the Charleston area to escape a generational cycle of poverty and addiction. She and her four children were living in transitional housing when she was referred to Entryway for assistance. In March of 2023, LeKita participated in Entryway Charleston’s leasing training program. After completing the training, LeKita was offered a full-time position as a Leasing Agent with Entryway Industry Partner, Brick Lane. Her family moved out of transitional housing into their new home at the Brick Lane community where she was hired. After only 6 months on the job, LeKita was promoted to Assistant Property Manager!
Congratulations, LeKita! Watch her inspiring story.
“Entryway has been a blessing. To be able to have a career and have stable housing has given me stability, confidence and opportunity to be able to take care of me and my kids. And, it makes me excited about the future and where we are going. ” – LeKita
