“I have two sons and I am able to spend more time with them, taking them on vacations and doing fun activities outside like swimming. It makes me happy to see my kids happy!”

“Before Climb, I was struggling to make ends meet and pay my bills. I knew a few women who went through the Climb program and they encouraged me to do it. I was excited to get my CDL license and have a job with some physical activity involved. It was eye opening to be in Climb with other women and hear what they had gone through – it gave me perspective. I am still in touch with several of the other participants from my Climb program.

Through life skills classes, Climb taught me how to handle tough situations – how to handle stress in the workplace, and how to communicate effectively. The group and individual counseling was really helpful – knowing that there was someone who you could trust and who you could tell anything. Today I am in a job where I do something different every day and I work with great people. I am working on buying a new house. I have two sons and I am able to spend more time with them, taking them on vacations and doing fun activities outside like swimming. It makes me happy to see my kids happy!”
