Getting Better Every Day
Claudia, mother of seven children ages one year to 14, came into the YMCA this fall to see if the Y could provide any assistance for her family. Claudia’s family had been living in the Safe Haven Shelter and their time to live there was coming to an end. Claudia was also interviewing for a new job and knew she had to find child care for her kids. The Y was able to cover her first 2 months of membership and two weeks of after school care to make sure her children had a safe place to go after school. “I told you that God would be there for us,” her 14-year-old child told her as they walked out of the Y. Claudia came to the Y the next day and updated the staff that she had received approval for housing and she had gotten a job.
“We are so grateful that the Arlington-Mansfield Area YMCA was here for me and my family,” -Claudia, AMA YMCA Member
