Clarice was our first scholarship recipient, she lived with her daughter, Raphela who was her fulltime caregiver. However, Raphela also had a full time job and did not know how she was going to take care of her loved one and work. Oakwood referred her to us and she was able to work and feel good about her mother being left in a fun loving place. Clarice had a  nickname “Aretha Franklin” because she could sing just like her and she did very often. I was lucky enough to hear her sing at Oakwood before she passed away.
