Olivia and Thomas
Wish us luck, lessons can now begin. The car is fixed and we are on the road 🚙. A step closer to getting a job.
My shelter before we got extra money. I now have a bed, a roof and a door. I shower and eat. I’m 59 years old and have started to do volunteer work. I don’t have the words to say how this has changed my life
I have a genetic condition that can affect my arteries. Today I could afford the screening test to see if I have early stage heart disease. I will need this test again in my lifetime but today was the first time I could actually afford it.
