ENDING THE CYCLE OF POVERTY ONE FAMILY AT A TIME

Deborah

Deborah entered Neighbors Empowered Cycle 5 in 2017.

"In October I attended my first Getting Ahead empowerment class aka Neighbors Empowered. At first, I did not know what to expect. I picked up a flyer about the program while bringing a neighbor to Valley Interfaith.

The program literally enlightened me on what poverty is and how it has affected the lives of myself and so many others in the Greater Cincinnati area.

I was so amazed at how Casey and Kimberly worked together as a team to assist us learning, understanding and growing…wanting to empower us with accurate knowledge that helps us recognize hidden rules so we can adapt to them and avoid pitfalls of accepting misfortune of living a life in poverty"

Carrie

Carrie entered Valley Interfaith Services in 2016 as part of our Cycle 4 Neighbors Empowered Program.

"I knew I was missing something in my life, but I did not know what it was. I came to Valley Interfaith for gas and electric help as I was struggling to stay afloat.

I saw the flyer about the Neighbors Empowered Program and thought maybe the class would help me get out of the rut I was in.

The class helped me find out what my goals were and how to reach them.

After graduation, I completed cooking school. I am now a professional cook but I have even more goals to meet. This gave me the start-now I know how to get what I want!"

Carrie has graduated two phases of Cincinnati Cooks program and has earned her Chef's knives. Carrie is now employed for the first time in many years and earning her own way.
