“After the sudden death of my only child (6 years old) I find it extremely difficult to work because my profession is in childcare. I have been unemployed for 7 months and am able to just start dipping my toes back into the water with temp jobs. I am trying to breath and get through each day.”
“I was laid off of my job and just started working again making a little more than half what my salary was. I have a child with a heart condition whose medical maintenance takes a large part of our flexible spending each year. My church is helping me with my individual therapy, but my therapist highly recommends group therapy for me as well.”
“My husband lost his job as a result of domestic violence. I was the victim. He is pending a felony charge and I have an order of protection on him. I am working fulltime with three kids. Making ends meet seems impossible right now."
“I was receiving services, but lost my job. It’s important to me to continue my counseling work, but I can no longer afford services.”
“We are a family of five. We live on my husband’s disability income. My husband is a Veteran and uses the VA for medical care. The children and I are on AHCCCS plans.
