The following stories demonstrate the huge impact that the Working Families Success Network of North Texas (WFSNT) is having on clients seeking assistance from or network of agencies. To protect the clients’ identities, we have used a first name only or, in some cases, changed the client’s name.
When “Cindy” came to The Women’s Center, she was working full-time at a local convenience store. Cindy was pregnant, and wasn’t able to afford career training that would support herself and her child. Through participation in The Women’s Center WFS program, Cindy began training as an Opthalmic Assistant Program through Tarrant Community College, and has received employment and financial coaching that has supported her in meeting goals such as paying off credit cards and increasing her credit score from 667 to 728. Cindy has been to get a loan for a car, and plans to participate in a home buying program within the next year.
WCTC’s bundled services helped her financially prepare for the birth of her first child, which allowed her to take time off of work following the birth of her baby without causing a financial strain. In the short time Cindy has worked with WCTC, she has demonstrated amazing goal achievement, and is a shining example of how the WFS works to support families in achieving financial success.« Back to Client Stories
