Grantee Impact: People Helping People

Members were thrilled to hear from Amberley Miller about People Helping People’s work with single mothers and other low-income women to instill the confidence and skills needed for independence and self-sufficiency.

People Helping People received a $5,000 grant just under a year ago and has impacted more than 5,000 women and children across the Wasatch Front in 2014 through their outreach, education, mentoring, and employment support programs.

68 women completed all four phases of the employment program that our grant went to support. 95% of those women are employed full time, 86% have health insurance, 62% paid off their debt, and 84% are off all forms of public assistance.

These numbers are impressive, but the everyday impact is even more inspiring. Check out Michelle’s story below:

We encourage our members to continue to donate to those organizations that inspire them.
