THE STORY:

For fifteen years, I have battled homelessness and addiction, with little hope that my situation could ever change. Then one day at the public library, I came across a flyer for the StreetWise Partners’ Career Ventures program. I was nervous and unsure I had what it took to complete a career development program. At the first session, I felt I couldn’t succeed and wanted to drop out. But my dedicated mentors gave me the support and guidance I needed to stay on track. In Spring 2011, I graduated from the Career Ventures program with the confidence and skills I need to pursue a career - and healthy, stable life!

I am now running the ING NYC Marathon to raise funds to support StreetWise Partners' life-changing career development and mentoring program. Because of the dedication of my volunteer corporate mentors, my perceptions about myself as a professional have changed dramatically. I have never felt this happy in my life. StreetWise Partners opened my eyes. I learned my career is within my control. The mentors really care and helped me improve my communication skills, present myself professionally and work with different types of people. Running the ING NYC marathon is my chance to give back.  Because of the workplace competencies and expanded network I have gained through StreetWise Partners, I have more stable employment, increased wages, and greater confidence.  The ING NYC Marathon is just one more accomplishment I can tuck under my belt!

Help me reach my fundraising goal of $3,500 by clicking the big DONATE button in support of a great cause!
