F or Emily, the Loving Help budget program was a fresh start and a renewed hope that life could be better. Upon meeting her budget mentor, Emily knew she had found a friend and someone who would always be in her corner. They journeyed through a year together, celebrating successes and learning from mistakes, all while rekindling hope in Emily's life. Emily set financial goals that at one time seemed unreachable. Through applying what she learned in class and working with her budget mentor, Emily concurred all of the financial goals she set for herself. She was especially proud to be able to afford an out-of-state family reunion on a fixed income. Now that Emily's year long mentorship is done, she still faithfully attends the Loving Help Bible study class. In her words, "I love it so much, I just can't stay away".
