Amy's Story

A single mom, Amy* is working hard to provide for herself and her young son. Recently, she was rewarded with a raise at work. As exciting as that raise is, with it comes some hardship. Amy’s raise puts her ever so slightly above the income level where she qualifies for subsidized housing and food stamps. Accepting the raise she worked so hard for, puts her and her son in a worse financial predicament than if she remained at her current pay level. In steps The Cooperative Ministry (one of WIP's grantees) to fill in the gaps to help Amy and her son. She took the raise anyway, and remains determined to work her way out of poverty.
