Two kids given a reason to celebrate

Posted:

WATERLOO (KWWL) - It was a special day at the Cedar Valley Hospitality House.

It was the birthday of two of their homeless guests. Billie, is one year old on Friday and his big sister, Karyzma, will be two Feb. 25th.

When they first arrived from Ohio, the kids didn't know what a doll or teddy bear was, so the Hospitality House wanted to throw a party in their honor.

"I think we wanted to make it special because they've had a hard time lately you and that's what we're really about here is providing support for the people," said Joni Hansen, Hospitality House Founder.

Billie and Karyzma's mom is working on getting her GED, and then go on to CNA training. She hopes to get an apartment soon.
