A Self-Sufficiency Highlight: You can do it too!

Kamekia Hart.JPGSeveral years ago, Action Pathways Self-Sufficiency program started to help a young, single woman by the name of Kamekia Hart. At the time, Ms. Hart was working part-time at a fast-food restaurant, could not afford health insurance but still made too much money to qualify for Medicaid. She was struggling to stay afloat and living check to check. She wanted the opportunity to do more with her life, but did not know where or how to begin without the resources to support her determination.

Take a look at how Action Pathways Self-Sufficiency program helped Ms. Hart tackle her legal troubles and get on the path towards realizing her goals; feeding her belief that all things are possible with faith and determination. 

Self-Sufficiency: Reentry Success

Count Reddon, a recent Action Pathways Self-Sufficiency participant, made one bad decision that caused him to lose his employment as a commercial plumber, his place of residence, transportation and, most importantly, his tools for work.  

After finishing his senIRA-Dress for Success 002.JPGtence, Mr. Reddon was released back into the community with nowhere to live and no means of finding employment. His car was impounded, containing all of his tools for work, subsequently making it much harder for him to earn a living; Reddon was forced to move into a shelter and start over. He reached out to Action Pathways Self-Sufficiency Program for assistance to help him, once again, become a productive member of society.
