“I am very grateful to the Soroptimist organization for helping me achieve my goals and improve my life. Thanks to being awarded, I was able to catch up on past due rent and avoid homelessness. I was also able to continue my education and pursue my passion for helping others. I have not yet completed my degree, but I have since started a new job as a behavioral therapist technician and found joy in working with children with autism. The Soroptimist award has also helped me gain a better understanding of myself and my potential. I have learned to overcome challenges, embrace opportunities, and appreciate diversity.

Being a single mother of two young adults, a full time student and working full time is not easy, but SILB has given me the support and motivation I needed to keep going. I am forever grateful for the opportunity to be blessed with the funds that have made a huge difference in my life and the lives of my children. It has truly changed my life for the better and I hope to inspire others with my story.” – A.T.
