Review for Ward Home, Inc., McKeesport, PA, USA
I became involved with Ward Home Inc, when I was 15/16. This program changed my life and helped me set the foundation for the woman I am today. The program helped me to gain independent livings skills that I was not able to get from my home environment. Some of those skills included: Cooking classes. resume writing, driving lessons, balancing a checkbook, opening a bank account, educational trips, and even college tours. Even when I had an issue this program was there to help. My first semester of college I wanted to drop out because I did not like the school I was at. My worker went above and beyond to take me to different schools until I found one that was right for me. Today I have my bachelors degree! These things may seem simple but a lot of foster kids do not get these services in there foster homes because they are constantly moving from place to place. This organization had an impact on my life from the services that they provided as well as there phenomenal staff. There staff was always there to help and encourage youth, especially the W.I.S.E program staff.
