IT IS IMPACTFUL
Your small sum invests in a family's future.
Vis a single mother with 4 children who drives to her multiple jobs and to take her children to school and relatives’ homes for childcare, while she works. She has been driving on a suspended license (due to multiple parking tickets) and is at risk of losing her job without a means of transportation. She has been on a monthly payment plan, yet without child support, it is sometimes a question of $50 for food on the table or her ticket payment plan. Still, she has managed to pay over 70% of her fines through perseverance.
The Shift Fund's payment of V's remaining fees allow her to keep her driver’s license and current job, while pursuing better employment.
V can now reinstate her license and is using the monthly income she had been using to pay her license fees, to pursue a career in real estate. She plans to continue to provide for her four children and hopes to serve as a role model to them.
