Earlier this year Doris came to Good Neighbors seeking assistance with her utilities. She is a single mother of three, was unemployed and lacked a high school degree. Her coach provided financial assistance for her utilities and encouraged Doris to pursue a GED and connect with the TN Career Center (now America’s Job Center). Doris returned in September again seeking assistance; however, she had attained her GED and secured a new job which starts in October! She now has a renewed sense of confidence and self-respect, and is more hopeful about her ability to provide for her children.
