Gracewood Mom Helped by GT Microloan Fund

Posted on Apr 20, 2011 in News |

 

Several years ago, Christ Evangelical Presbyterian Church awarded a grant to The Get Together that is used to provide funds to clients recommended by our Partner Ministries.  These microloans are designed to help remove any barriers to employment that people might have.  These barriers can include lack of transportation, tools or special clothing that is required for a job.

Gracewood Executive Director, Debbie Rippstein, approached The Get Together Board about Kasey, a single mom living at Gracewood.  Kasey had several outstanding traffic tickets that needed to be paid in order for her to obtain a driver’s license and go to work.   Kasey received a micro-loan to pay the tickets, which she is faithfully paying back each month.  In addition to working as a hair stylist at Saks, Kasey has started two additional businesses – as a face painter and make-up artist.

The Get Together is proud to support this hardworking entrepreneur and look forward to all the great things God has in store for Kasey and her precious 2-year-old son, Landon!
