Graduating With Hope
I appreciate all that you and Big Table have done for me — ensuring that I am successful in this time of journey in my life! I consider you a friend now, and we will be connected in so many ways forever!
Ayoe was referred to us when she was given an eviction notice from her hotel-apartment. She had just begun her Kitchens for Good program to learn culinary skills and was desperate not to lose her housing. Big Table helped her get caught up on her rental payments and encouraged her through the remainder of the program. After graduation, she was placed as a line cook at a beautiful waterfront restaurant with incredible co-workers. She feels so hopeful about her future now. She was able to proudly reopen a new bank account to start saving towards a simple apartment for herself and her adult son on the spectrum. You got this, Ayoe!
