As a next step, Anayancy has enrolled into CPC’s Self-Sufficiency Program, which pairs residents ready to make changes in their lives with a coach who will work with them long-term to create and achieve their goals. While Anayancy is just beginning on her years-long journey, her dream remains strong, and the benefits of her partnership with CPC and the education that she’s embraced has already had a strong impression on her.
Anayancy was part of CPC’s new Spanish-language “Getting Ahead” classes and is now working with a bilingual self-sufficiency coach – both important services that are now available to Spanish-speaking residents of York County.
Anayancy’s story is inspiring, and it all began through the connections she made through CPC’s Head Start program in Hanover, where her three children were enrolled in the no-cost pre-school program. She volunteered in the classroom and worked with her family engagement specialist to connect with classes and other programs, and to help her realize that her goals could be achieved.
“I see my future with great achievements, like getting the GED diploma, having a better level of English, having a job, doing what I like, buying a car, paying for our house sooner, supporting my community,” she said.
Add to that her goals of going to college and perhaps becoming an early childhood education teacher with Community Progress Council, a goal that would bring her dream full circle to where it all began.
Anayancy is now working, has learned to drive, and has been able to pay off her credit cards. She is a co-facilitator in CPC's "Getting Ahead" classes to help others in her community make progress in their lives. She is taking money that she is earning from her job and depositing it into a savings account. We congratulate you, Anayancy, on the successes from all your hard work!
