"I earned my GED, not just for me but for my kids."

Gabby, a single mom of two, wanted a better future for her family. She went to the Family Literacy Center through the GST MI works office in Sandusky. With two young children, finding time for herself was hard, but she joined classes to improve her skills.

Gabby worked hard, and FLC supported her efforts. Slowly she gained confidence in her abilities. Passing her final test meant a lot to Gabby and her children- a big win for their future.

With her new skills, Gabby is exploring better job and training opportunities. Gabby's story shows how education and community support can change lives.

"Education isn't just about passing a test; it's about unlocking the door to a better future. With determination and support, I earned my GED, not just for me but for my kids. The Family Literacy Center believed in me and now I believe in the power of second chances and brighter tomorrows." Gabby, a proud GED achiever and single mom of two.

Since January 2023, 53 students have earned their GED with the support of invaluable donors and volunteers from the Family Literacy Center. You have the opportunity to change the lives of even more individuals by giving today.
