Kim is now more confident and looking forward to a bright future for her family.
Kim has a lot to be proud of. She and her three daughters (ages 10, 11, and 13) overcame many obstacles during their transition from homelessness to permanent housing. In early 2017, when she enrolled in My Home, a Salvation Army program funded by The Women’s Fund that provides housing and case management for low income single mothers, Kim and her family lived at a local shelter. In May, Kim and her daughters were able to move into permanent housing and My Home assisted with securing appliances, paying utility deposits, and purchasing school uniforms.
One of the first things Kim told her case manager was how much she wanted a career. Not a job, but a career. She said she wanted to enroll in a medical training program and, true to her spirit of determination, began a certification program at a local community college last October. My Home covered the tuition. Kim is now more confident and looking forward to a bright future for her family.
