COMMUNITY WOMEN AGAINST HARDSHIP
March 28, 2011

Community Women Against Hardship has literally has aided in changing my life. Qualifying for services was not hard. Picking 3 services that they provide was. I choose their fitness and nutrition classes which were informative and when put to use, very effective. In 8 sessions I've lost 8 pounds. Also taking Therapy sessions which has really helped me mentally get ready for the type of life I'd like to live and support has put me on a road of success I couldn' have imagine for myself and family 4 months ago. Being involved, fully participating, and being on time has put me on lone to work at a major hospital here in St. Louis. My children have more structure, happiness, and higher self esteem. Also I've gotten to experience events I never knew existed like Jazz at the Bistro, which I've really enjoyed and met lovely people. While going through hard times and at the beginning not being able to pay my utilities they also helped there. Keeping my mind focus enough to keep advocating for my son's education , who has Asperger's Autism and Epilepsy of which they've been supportive in advice in that situation which has had a very positive outcome. Now I'm looking forward to the walk a thon that's being held on May 7th. CWAH has helped my family's emotional, spiritual, financial, artistic, educational, and social needs. I couldn't ask for a better organization (family) to belong to.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would change nothing about the organization but the amount of families that participate. Their should be many more familiesknocking the doors down to be involved with them.
