Success Story: Sara

Sara’s family struggled to pay their rent and keep their lights on. With the help from a United Way-funded agency, they were able to get caught up with their payments and received financial planning advice for the future. As a way to give back, Sara decided she wanted to volunteer with the agency’s after-school program. Once she finishes her homework, she helps the staff and students with tutoring, snacks and planning outdoor games. For fifteen-year-old Sara, the agency’s community center became a home away from home. “Working with mostly at-risk youth, Sara always makes these children feel like they can conquer the world,” says Tammy Seymour, Program Director. “When she‘s not around, her presence is missed.”
