“My daughter says she feels better, more secure knowing that mom is taking care of us.”

“In my life before Climb, I worked in bars and lived on food stamps and assisted housing. I wasn’t able to get a good job that had regular hours, so my kids were never home, never got to sleep in their own room. I couldn’t buy them clothes. It was hard for them. Now their lives have changed dramatically. They don’t have to worry about how we’ll get things. My daughter says she feels better, more secure knowing that mom is taking care of us. My whole life, I’ve quit things that are too hard—but at Climb I wanted to show that I could do anything! Learning to drive a truck was crazy since I’m only 5’2”, but I love it. Now I say, ‘try new things because you never know—you may find out you can do it.’”
