This single mother, COVID-19 survivor, and student at Wellspring School of Allied Health was learning to be a medical assistant. She was supposed to spend this fall in an externship, a requirement of her studies. Now, thanks to the spread of COVID-19, her training has been postponed and she’s not sure when it will be rescheduled.

Student loans are her main source of income. As those debts mount, so does her anxiety about paying them back.

She’s taken a part-time job as an entrance screener at a local hospital but is finding it difficult to fit those work hours around her children’s virtual learning schedule.

During her time recovering from the virus, she was unable to work for several weeks. As she says, “Things are just crazy right now. It would be nice to be able to provide the kids with a solid Christmas”.

A bicycle and an X-box gift card are the top items on the ten year old boy’s Christmas list. Her seven-year-old daughter wants a red fashion jacket and ripped jean overalls. Other days she just wants to play and has added a fake sword and scooter as gifts she would like.

Clothing and basic household supplies are additional needs for this family.
