Bluffton Self Help helps woman get an education

info@islandpacket.comDecember 11, 2012 

A young woman came to Bluffton Self Help one day to inquire about its new Educational Assistance Program.

She returned the next day with a completed application. She also wrote a letter, explaining she was raised by her grandmother after her parents were incarcerated. Her grandmother showed her a better way of life and taught her responsibility, accountability, honesty and integrity.

In support of the grandmother's efforts and in response to the young woman's determination, Bluffton Self Help agreed to help her earn a degree in early childhood development so she can become a teacher.

Bluffton Self Help provides a broad range of social services for poor working families, the disabled, sick and elderly.
