STORIES OF CHANGE
Before I joined the Family Economic Security Program, I was a single mother who did not have much support. I had a whole bunch of people who told me I was not going to be able to succeed, and that college wasn’t even an option. In less than two semesters, I will have my bachelor’s degree. Because of you, my dreams are coming true.

“As new parents, we want to give back to the community where we will be raising our children, and show our girls that it’s very important to give. It’s never too early to start to think about giving back.”
