Don’t let Blanca’s dreams of a better life slip away.
Staff recently connected with Blanca, a Healthcare trainee who cannot afford to be without our ongoing support. Blanca, her husband and son rent a room with a shared bathroom. Juggling daily assignments and finding private space for personal conversations with her case manager is a challenge, but Blanca is determined to not give up. She was recently let go from her part-time waitressing job. Her husband’s work in construction has luckily continued but she worries about him being exposed to COVID-19. Their family is relying on his income.

Blanca, overwhelmed, recently admitted to her case manager, “I’m so stressed out. I don’t know what I would do without you. I’m worried about paying rent and buying food.” Because of the support from caring people like you, Hope Builders provides Blanca—and others in the same situation—with gift cards to grocery stores to help them meet their most basic needs.

Give to support emergency funds and virtual mentorship for Blanca.
Your support today means that trainees, like Blanca, will get access to emergency funds to help them continue their progress virtually so that when normal operations resume, they’ll be able to move into a career.

Thank you for your ongoing commitment to Hope Builders. Your generosity makes a significant difference in the lives of our trainees and their families.
