“Our family is so good now—there’s peace where there was none before. My kids aren’t nervous anymore. Dinner is there, home is there.”

“I am 52 and was recently divorced when I started Climb. My goal was simple: I just needed a way to take care of my family. But I ended up gaining about 10 years of knowledge while in the Climb program. Anybody can get a job, but with Climb I got a career where I’m making plans for the future. Now I wake up on Monday morning and can’t wait to go to work! I’m already in a supervisory position and received a raise within one month of employment. It’s a wonderful feeling to be off welfare—it feels good to meet my kids’ needs. Our family is so good now—there’s peace where there was none before. My kids aren’t nervous anymore. Dinner is there, home is there. I tell people interested in Climb that you have to be ready to give it 100 percent. In return, it will change your life.”
