My Prosperity Planner, Becky, met with me privately about my situation, my goals, and what I could do in the future. I was so happy to share my concerns with somebody who was really listening to me. I even cried. She knew that I couldn’t really think too far into the future, because I needed some stability before I could make big plans.

Becky connected me to community resources that I did not know about that changed my life. With her help, I was recently able to move into a two-bedroom place, which really made all of our lives better. And I’ve been able to move on to my next goal—buying a car. Becky has gotten me moving in the right direction.”
