A bridge to help a single mom set the path to success

mother smiling holding her son in her lap“Susan’s” husband recently left her alone with their young son, suddenly making her the sole parent and singularly responsible for all their bills. In this difficult time, she had to immediately regroup and find a way to support her family. Fortunately, she was able to quickly secure employment, but she still needed help to cover costs until her first paycheck arrived. Our Berkeley Connection Resource Center was able to secure a one-time payment of $1,320 for rental assistance and offered support in creating a budget to keep her on track in the months and years ahead. Susan set herself on a path to success in the face of a trying situation, and Trident United Way was proud to offer a bridge to help get her on her way
