Car #393 has been donated! This nice SUV went to a woman working with the YWCA Cass Clay.
She has been associated with the YWCA for over six months, coming to the emergency shelter in the summer. She has faced multiple challenges and barriers that have set her back.
Her son has a medical diagnosis that impacts his daily life which leads to many doctor's appointments and therapy appointments. She has a young daughter also at home.
She recently has been hired at a memory care facility and her boss is working with her until she obtains permanent transportation. Both the mother and her daughter have asthma, which makes walking difficult especially in cold weather.
She was paying $30.00 a day for rideshares to try to make it to and from work but it quickly made it difficult to save money and make ends meet. It was not feasible to try to save money.
Per her caseworker, she is resilient, strong, and becoming incredibly independent after her most recent struggles. Her biggest barrier is no independent transportation or having to pay for rides. This vehicle will be transformative for this family, allowing her to continue towards self-sufficiency.
When receiving the keys, she couldn’t contain her emotions and thoughtfully expressed her gratitude for the gift.
Huge thanks to the Moorhead High School Career Academy Automotive students! Their repairs made this vehicle safe, reliable and ready for this deserving family. Awesome work!
God is great!
