FROM LESS TO SUCCESS! We love to share about the success of our alumni.
Below is an excerpt from a letter from Dawn, used with her permission:
“I am sitting at the airport right now waiting for my flight and I was thinking about you (Helping Hands). I wanted to thank you –again- for the tremendous opportunity you afforded to both me and my boys. You never quite know the full impact that your support will give to another, but I have to admit the support you have provided to me has certainly paid off.
Last Friday I was promoted to Program Manager for our agency. I am one of three who now hold this position and the only other move I could make in the organization is the Executive Director position. It is only because of my degree and the sense of self worth I received through earning that degree that I was even able to apply for the position. You know it’s funny, when my Exec Dir offered me the position and disclosed the salary, I instantly flashed back 10 years ago sitting next to my youngest son in a hospital bed in ICU. He was two months old, I had no job and had just put my ex husband out. I remember sitting there crying wondering how I would ever get out of the mess I had created. Well I think now we can consider it done : ).”
Today, Dawn is a well paid professional working in the non-profit community. She is able to provide for her family thanks to the generous donors of Helping Hands for Single Moms.
We work diligently as stewards of your investment to see that your hard earned money results in success for single mom college student families in need of a “helping hand,” throughout Phoenix, and soon in Tucson, AZ.
