Who We Help
A recently separated mother of two young girls came to the Career & Life Transitions Center. Though struggling financially, she was ineligible for food stamps. Without the extra cushion provided by such benefits as Child Support and Rental Assistance, she lived by borrowing against her credit. She has a business degree and decided that she needed a career change and further schooling because she could not afford the commute back and forth to New York City for her job as a single parent.
Support Resiliency Today!
This year has brought extraordinary challenges to our low-income neighbors, many of whom are just one paycheck away from crisis. Your support of Norwescap helps us ensure that the individuals and families who rely on us are given the help they need – food and basic necessities; housing and childcare assistance; and the opportunity for a brighter, more stable future.
