Accomplishing Dreams

Posted by Erin Tink on

We celebrated this month with a gal who will be graduating from school in the spring. She is 36 years old and on a focused path toward stability. We are thrilled to cheer her on!

She called us last May for help with her water bill. At that time she was working part-time and having a very difficult time paying her bills. As we do with all of our intake conversations, we dreamed with her about what she wanted in her life. She mentioned a 12-month pharmaceutical program she was considering and was hoping to start in the fall of 2015. We helped her with her water bill and we encouraged her to pursue the program - even if she was going to lose some state assistance due to a higher income level, it would surely benefit her in the long run.

Unexpectedly we heard from her again in December. She was asking for help with her water bill and that initially gave us some concern. When we hear from folks who need the same type of assistance we have already recently provided it can sometimes reveal that there has been little change to their circumstances. We asked her about the pharmaceutical program she meant to pursue last year. We were happy to hear she was almost finished! She will intern in the spring (while maintaining her part-time job) and will graduate soon. She needs this short-term financial help to get her through her last semester.

We are happy to help her as she moves forward with her dreams!
