Sofia Vasquez was an active mom in her child’s classroom at APM. She was unemployed and not attending school at that time. During one her many conversations with APM staff, Sofia mentioned she was interested in improving the quality of life for herself and her daughter.
APM assisted Ms. Vasquez by directing her to begin at the Department of Public Welfare where she could learn about programs she would be eligible to receive assistance from. APM helped her get accepted into a certificate program to receive credentials that would one day allow her to work as a teacher’s assistant in classrooms like APM’s Head Start.
Sofia recently completed Child Development Associate classes and is just weeks away from taking her certification exam and beginning her new career!
