This is Sandra. Sandra is a grandmother raising her granddaughter Ella, and she recently lost her job. Ella is 7 years old and she loves karate.
Sandra had been saving for months to afford the classes but with the mounting bills and a very limited income, Sandra realized her only option would be to sideline Ella from starting karate this Spring. But, with the help of United Way’s ALICE Enrichment Fund, she now could.
“I just registered Ella for three months of karate,” says Sandra, “without the Alice Enrichment Fund, this would never have been possible. I'm also getting help to learn how to budget through the Financial Opportunity Center so I can start saving for next spring! Thank you!”
