Support Neighbors Navigating Challenging Times

Capstone financial coach, Mary Johnson (left), recently supported Diana* through a complex point in her life. A single mom of two teenagers, without a car, and living in a motel due to a recent eviction, Diana was simultaneously fired from her job and diagnosed with cancer. Mary helped her enroll in Reach Up and improve her financial skills, and worked with Diana for a year in individual meetings and classes.

Fast forward to today, Diana has a new job, is paying down debt and starting to improve her credit score. Most importantly, she is excited to restart her life with greater stability and independence!  *Note: Name has been changed to protect privacy.

Together, we can make these stories of a community that cares a reality. Your donation empowers our neighbors to build security in the face of adversity.

A Participant's Story

“I’ve worked with Sue Rossi at Capstone since the 90’s for fuel assistance. I need to keep warm and this program helps me do that. I’ve also had weatherization twice in my house. I just feel very honestly that this is a godsend and a blessing. ”
- Marcia Kepnes, speaking about LIHEAP and Capstone support
