Mary completed Climb's Certified Nursing Assistant training.

“I’m now one of the highest paid CNAs at work. My kids can get things they need for school, and I don’t have to beg, steal and borrow to make it happen for them. It’s just a great sense of accomplishment.”

“Since Climb, I’ve been able to move up the ladder instead of working so hard and feeling like I’m not going anywhere. I didn’t have health insurance for any of my kids before, and my medical bills just went to collections. That was hard.

I figured I was just doing the CNA training at Climb, but the counseling and support has really helped. Being in a room with all those other women helped me be more open with co-workers and showed me how to think before I talk. I’m now part of a management team, and these communication skills have been really important.
