I am the youngest of 7 kids; 3 brothers, 3 sisters - and me. My mom and dad divorced when I was young so it became very tough to make ends meet. My mom raised us kids as a single mother. I couldn't imagine how difficult that was for her.
I am very blessed to live in the Ohio Valley where there are employment opportunities. I am grateful to have the access I do to resources and community, I think that is the real reason I am doing better.
Without my benefits, I would be hopeless, I rely on the public housing and food assistance they might want to take away.
