Not long after sustaining a neck injury as a registered nurse, Toni Short became homeless. She pulled into the Rehoboth Walmart parking lot where she lived for two years. But once she realized she was not the only homeless person there, she set out to help them all: motel rooms, meals, clothes, and money for people without homes. In 2015, she started the nonprofit Lighthouse for Broken Wings to provide permanent supportive housing for people experiencing homelessness. The first transitional house opened in 2016 and welcomed the people who had been living in their cars in the Walmart parking lot with her. She has worked without pay for her foundation and used her own money from outside jobs to pay for those who cannot pay to live in her houses, impacting the lives of over 500 people and raising $30,000.
