Impact Story: Maria

Maria and her family suffered a terrible loss when her husband unexpectedly passed away earlier this year in a tragic accident. Suddenly Maria was a single mom, responsible for four children and all the bills and had no family in the area for her to turn to. The Y was there for Maria and her family.

With support from donors like you, Maria and her family slowly began to adjust to their new lives. Financial assistance gave Maria’s children a fun, caring place to spend the summer while Maria worked. Y staff provided caring mentors for Maria’s children and a support network for her.

While it will take time for Maria’s family to heal, she is grateful for the support she’s received from the Y, and from donors like you.
