Becoming Self-Sufficient

Kimberley must rely on her friends to live her daily life. They drive her everywhere she needs to go. She has to find a friend to drive her to and from work every day. In addition, Kimberley is raising her two nieces, ages 8 and 12, all by herself. Her transportation issues affect them as well. They will often struggle to find rides to and from activities, the doctor’s office, and friends’ houses. Kimberley wishes she could take them to more activities, but is hesitant to ask for too much help. She feels like a burden on the people in her life.

This car award will not only improve Kimberley’s life, but her family, friends, and nieces’ lives. Kimberley will no longer have to rely on others to do simple daily activities like grocery shopping and going to the doctor. In addition to being able to drive herself to work, Kimberley plans to get a second job. Her family and friends will no longer have to take time out of their busy schedules to drive Kimberley and her family. Her children are looking forward to after-school activities and travel.
