Building income security with families through career training and leadership development.
Mikeyra, head of household for her family of four, worked a third-shift job while participating in our 2019-2020 Adult Career Training Program, tackling each day on very little sleep. Working and going to school, coupled with housing and financial strains, it was almost too much to bear alone. But her WMCAT family was there for her. “WMCAT never let me feel like I was alone,” she shared.
“It was a sacrifice, but I know I am going to create a future for my children,” she explained. Mikeyra’s tenacity made 2020 an incredible year for her family as she landed in a career at Spectrum Health and stopped living paycheck-to-paycheck.
“WMCAT means a lot to me. I don’t know how to put it in words – I want to hug WMCAT.”
Thanks for being a part of Mikeyra’s first steps towards income security.
