Do you know what it’s like to run into roadblocks in life?
Alexi did. When he first came to New Hope Ministries, he needed help with food and with paying his rent. He was having a hard time making ends meet even though he was working a full-time job in a local retail store.
He knew he needed to take a different route in life so he wouldn’t have to keep coming back for help. That’s why one day Alexi asked us about our Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) Class A program, just one of the many job training programs we offer at New Hope for people who want to find more stability in their lives by being trained in a high-demand and high-wage field. Alexi was driven to end the cycle of financial uncertainty in his life, and he felt that getting training to earn his CDL would be the best way to solve his problem.
So, we got to work with Alexi! He attended our Dollars and Sense budget class and Soft Skills class, and we helped him apply and enroll in truck driving school. But before he could start school, he faced another barrier: a reliable vehicle to get to and from classes. Because of generous people in our community, New Hope has a vehicle donation program specifically to help guests like Alexi. And it turned out we had a car available just for him.
Alexi was accepted into the driving school, faithfully attended classes, completed the program with flying colors, and passed his CDL driving test. And wouldn’t you know it, as soon as he got his CDL, he was hired by a trucking company and on the road! After completing 40,000 miles of driving, he was given his own truck and route.
Your financial gifts truly do change lives! God bless your support!
