“I’m not as tired as I was and have energy to go home to my kids.”

“I was working in housekeeping before Climb. It was stressful because I did double shifts so was working in the morning and then at night. I didn’t see my kids and they would always ask, ‘When

are you coming back?’ They didn’t want to go to school and were fighting a lot. I was mentally and physically drained.

At Climb, it was okay to say what you thought, and there was no judgment. We got connected to community resources like counseling for my kids. It used to be that I’d ask for help and get down about it—now I can pick up the phone.

I’d never had a mock interview, it was always, ‘Here’s a job you’re stuck with it.’ I have such great healthcare benefits now. I’m not as tired as I was and have energy to go home to my kids.”
