Because of you, this mom has hope
After turning down a promotion five times, your gift gave her the opportunity to succeed.
For years, Victoria had been a good employee at Goodwill and her supervisor wanted to offer her a promotion to sales manager for increased wages, more responsibility and recognition for a job well done. Unfortunately, reliable transportation was a critical piece to this higher position. To meet the required schedule, she would not be able to rely on public transportation or friends to get her to and from work.
Because of you and your support, the doors at Ways to Work were open to Victoria when she had nowhere else to turn and wanted to make changes to better support her family.
“With Ways to Work I have been able to move up in my job. I am now a sales manager. The best part is now my daughter was also able to participate in Girls on the Run.”
By coming to Ways to Work, Victoria had a program specialist to walk alongside her in this journey and work with her one-on-one preparing her to be qualified to receive a car loan. After months of preparation and hard work, Victoria’s loan was approved.
For the first time, Victoria had reliable transportation. She could make sure her children got to school on time, get them to and from the doctor, and support other members of her family. Now that she has a car of her own, Victoria’s daughter was also able to participate in Girls on the Run after school.
This car has completely changed Victoria’s life. Now, this mother of 5 has so much self-confidence and joy. Her family has hope for the future. Together they are thriving.
“I wouldn’t have been able to change my life without the car.”
This transformation is only possible because of YOU! Thank you for your love of people like Victoria – needing a community to walk alongside her.
Just weeks after getting reliable transportation, her supervisor revisited the opportunity for a promotion to sales manager. And this time, she confidently accepted.
You transformed Victoria’s life. Without you, she would still be waiting on a ride , which is why your gifts matter so much. Every day there are men and women, who much like Victoria, walk through our doors feeling like there’s no hope. But because of you and your support, help and hope are waiting for them.
