Who We Help

Every staff member at Upward Transitions, read the short letter, saw the check and smiled.  A donation and a simple, handwritten note expressing gratitude are enough to make any nonprofit employee’s day.  But this donation and this note were different.  They represented the final step in a journey that began nearly five years ago.

There is a warmth to Glenda that seems to relax the very air around her.  She speaks in a slow, deliberate and thoughtful cadence.  But behind the kindness in her eyes is a fatigue, a tiredness that comes with being a single mother of four.

I walked out of Upward Transitions feeling hopeful, blessed and, yes, loved. I’m beyond thankful to have met with them and to be assisted by Upward Transitions.
