Beatrice had been working in her job for 26 years when she was laid off.

When she was younger, she attended college briefly but had to quit and return home to care for her sick mother. With financial assistance from Bluffton Self Help, she returned to school. Now, she is a certified surgical assistant and is seeking a full-time position in her new career.

Bluffton Self Help staff members mentor 18 students who are attending post-secondary education classes to improve their lives.

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