Journey to Self-Sufficiency - Part 2

Journey to Self-Sufficiency - Part 2

In this video, Aisha Gaffney from the Mayor's Office of Community Empowerment & Opportunity and Rhonda Wilkins from Westmoreland Community Action talk about their journey to self-sufficiency. They discuss how it feels to live at low-income, the resources they leveraged to get back into the middle-class, and their vision for the future. These inspirational women know that, “the difference between stumbling blocks and stepping stones is how you use them.”
