Before coming to StreetWise Partners, Yahaira battled homelessness and other significant challenges as a young, single mother.
In the face of her personal struggles, Yahaira felt deep down that her greatest barrier was an inability to provide for her newborn son. Breaking her cycle of poverty began with Yahaira’s self-determination and ended with the dedicated support of her StreetWise Partners mentors.
Today, Yahaira is a technology administrative assistant, managing her company’s inventory system. Because of StreetWise Partners, she has fulfilled her dream of building a career and a better life for herself and her son!
“After I graduated from StreetWise Partners, I felt like a force to be reckoned with. StreetWise Partners changes lives – they’ve definitely changed mine.” -Yahaira M.
