Adam came to MicroGrants through Summit Academy. He had just finished a community health vocational program at Summit Academy and was starting a new job when his car broke down. Summit helped him apply for a transportation grant and he was able to get his car fixed.
“It was very instrumental because, had I not received the grant, I wouldn’t have been able to get to my job every day. Then, I wouldn’t have been able to keep the job and I probably wouldn’t be where I’m at right now.”
Adam now works as a community health worker at a health center during the day and goes to school at night to pursue his goal of becoming a licensed alcohol and drug counselor.
“When something goes right, is right on time, and is super crucial to get you to the next step to where you are trying to get…that’s how I would describe the micro grant. The timing of it couldn’t have been any more perfect and it just allowed me to purse the goals that I had.”
