With one car that in was not in good running condition, Maria had to work out a schedule to get all the kids to daycare and school, her husband to his various appointments and get herself to her classes. When asked, what is something she can do now that she wasn’t able to do before entering the Washoe Native TANF program she smiled and said, “Buy a home, teach, help support the last two of her kids in college and travel”. 

After struggling with many obstacles and overcoming them by obtaining a good paying job with benefits Ashley was no longer dependent on TANF. She is very proud of her accomplishments, is grateful for all the assistance from the Washoe Native TANF Program and now knows that she can provide for her family on her own. Her new goal is working towards advancement with her new company. 

Kyle had responsibilities to his family that weren’t being met working at Taco Bell so when he was accepted into the On-The-Job training program at Washoe Native TANF it was an opportunity of a lifetime! He was being paid to work and learn new skills that will work into a lifetime career.  A year later, “With the skills Kyle has learned he could walk down the street and get hired by any one of the half dozen HVAC shops around here” said the shop owner.

Emily and Travis’ marriage is just the latest of many successes that Emily experienced within her first year of beginning the Washoe Native TANF program.

With the assistance of TANF’s Marriage Promotion program Emily, along with her two sons, and Travis, have fulfilled their dream of becoming a two-parent family.
