Albany- While many people are worrying about what gifts are going to go under the Christmas tree, others, like twenty-four year old, Tancy Wheeler, say they have bigger concerns, like finding a place to stay and a full-time job.

Tancy says everything in her life was turned upside down, when she was diagnosed with a major illness, and she had to be admitted to the hospital. Wheeler went to the Albany Outreach Faith Outreach Center's Shelter because she didn't have anywhere else to go, and now, she has the faith to know she's going to succeed.

Tancy says a normal day for her begins by getting her children ready, and she says it's because of Caterra, Beshea and Jazzmainem that she will keep updating her resume and continue to search for a permanent job every day.

Tancy says while she doesn't have a home to call her own, she says her good days will continue to outweigh her bad days, and she will never complain.

Tancy says she will be enrolling at Darton College in January, and a few weeks ago she found a job as a waitress, but she will continue to look for something more permanent.
