"Now that I am coming to the end of my CNA class I feel that I have learned so much. The Getting Ahead class through Connections Corner showed me that I can get out of the social and economic area that I am in. My CNA class has really opened my eyes to the opportunities that are available in the medical field and maybe some other things that I can shoot for in the future.
Adelante has given me the boost in my confidence that I need to advance my life. I feel like my son now has someone to look up to. Without this program I really feel that I never would have tried to start a career because I felt that I was just not capable of doing so. This is a great program and could change the lives of many parents. I would like to thank all who have made this possible for me. I hope you know that you have really improved not just my life, but the life of my son."
