Ashley completed Climb's Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) training.

“I’m able to do those little things that I wasn’t before—like enroll my kids in gymnastics and buy them new school clothes.”

“When I started Climb, I had just divorced and hadn’t worked in eight years. I was used to being supported all the time, so suddenly it was all on me. Everything was new and unknown. Climb was the best thing I ever did. The counseling helped teach me new and different ways to think—you realize how your brain goes to the negative and learn how to stop it. Our group all passed the state CNA certification test on the first try, and my score was a 96 percent! Now I can actually save money. I’m able to do those little things that I wasn’t before—like enroll my kids in gymnastics and buy them new school clothes. I’m not worried now about where I’m going to be. Climb went by so fast, but I feel like a different person than I was just five months ago.”
