New Vehicle a Step Toward Independence

New Vehicle a Step Toward Independence

Minnie is getting her life back. Prior to joining the culinary school at the Butterfly Foundation in 2014 she hadn’t worked for about seven years – since the recession. With support from her family, she was able to make it through and luckily found the culinary school. After graduating from the culinary school she was kept on as an employee of the Butterfly Foundation and she can be seen cheerily greeting guests at the Monarch Café. She currently lives with her sister and being able to purchase her own vehicle through the Car IDA Program allowed her to get more work hours and a second job so she can be independent in her own place again soon!
